Savannah Court

Walk through the front entrance of the Savannah Court of Maitland assisted living community, and it is easy to see why this is the next best thing to home for its 100-or-so senior residents.

At any given time, there is something going on in the Savannah Court “living room.” Sometimes it’s as simple as residents socializing with each other or visiting with friends or family members. Other times, residents are engaged in lively word games, card games, or Bingo. There are also religious services, exercise classes, and live entertainment. The Savannah Court living room is clearly where the action is in this charming and elegant senior community.

“We have all kinds of things going on here for our residents,” says Carol Spears, marketing relations director for Savannah Court of Maitland. “When you first walk in, there’s that energy, and things are happening. But our residents can also go to their apartment or walk around the lake, where it’s pretty and quiet. Our goal is to keep them as independent for as long as possible. To do that, you need to provide socialization, nutrition, and exercise, and you need to meet any spiritual needs they have. We want them to be involved in life and engaged in life. And we want to make this as much like home as possible.”

At Savannah Court, residents can choose from several open-concept studio and one-bedroom floor plans, each of which is equipped with senior-friendly bathrooms, kitchenettes, and emergency response systems. Savannah Court’s community also offers three delicious meals daily (with options) prepared by certified executive chef Deb Judson in its elegant dining room, as well as weekly laundry and housekeeping services. Residents can also take advantage of beautifully landscaped walking paths and lovely courtyards and patios with views of Lake Charity.

In addition, Savannah Court provides transportation to residents for shopping trips or medical appointments, and the Friday lunch group makes weekly trips to a variety of area restaurants. Residents also have individual care plans and nurses on duty 24 hours a day.

But what makes Savannah Court most unique is its association with Savannah Cove, a 39-bed skilled nursing care and short-term rehabilitation center under the same roof. Savannah Court and Cove combine the best in care with the comforts of home.

“From the employees to the residents, we’re so close-knit, and everybody is very friendly,” Carol says. “It feels like family here.”
