It’s not a senior living facility. It’s a community.
That’s what Thrive Senior Living President Les Strech stressed Thursday night during the formal unveiling of the Tribute center in One Loudoun.
The 140-room center features a spa, salon, movie theater, and outdoor rooftop terraces as well as a variety of high-tech amenities aimed at keeping residents active and involved. The Tribute is separated into distinct “neighborhoods” dedicated to serving seniors with varying levels of dementia. Atlanta-based Thrive Senior Living’s proprietary wellness program allows residents, their families, and physicians to maintain a picture of their well-being using tools such as activity trackers and in-room monitoring systems that record each resident’s routines and patterns and can report anomalies and trends.
The opening means One Loudoun isn’t just a cool place for millennials to hang out.
“We now have something for all ages at One Loudoun,” developer Bill May, of Miller and Smith, said during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Strech said that his company’s philosophy for success begins with hiring the right people, who undergo an extensive, multi-round interview process.
Leading Tribute’s One Loudoun center is a familiar face in Loudoun. Danny Davis has been hired as president of the One Loudoun center.
He is stepping down as Purcellville’s assistant town manager.
Currently serving in both posts, David said the opportunity to join the Thrive organization came quickly, in just the past few weeks. He is staying on with the town through Sept. 29 to ensure a smooth transition with his staff.
Davis had been the heir apparent to Purcellville Town Manager Robert Lohr Jr. who retired in June, but the Town Council selected Public Works Director Alex Vanegas to serve as Lahr’s interim replacement. Davis was hired as the assistant town manager in 2015. Prior to that he worked in policy development and executive management for the Loudoun County government. He graduated from Purcellville’s Patrick Henry College with a bachelor’s degree in government and holds a master’s degree in public administration from George Mason University.
Davis said he is looking forward to the first residents moving in in the days ahead.
