Sonata Senior Living

You may have traveled along I-4 recently and noticed a large community being built on the east side of the interstate between Lake Mary Boulevard and 46A. This community is not only changing the face of Lake Mary, it’s changing the face of senior living. 
Sonata Lake Mary, opening this winter, is a resort-style independent and assisted living community built with the discerning senior in mind. “We know retirement living is all about having more time and freedom to live your best life,” said Brooke Ellis, Executive Director of Sonata Lake Mary. “We have created a place that will invite each resident to pursue their passions and personal interests." 
Located in Lake Mary’s Wellness & Technology Park, Sonata Lake Mary will offer 193 spacious Independent and Assisted Living apartments ranging in size from 769 to 1,518 square feet. “When somebody leaves their home, they usually expect to give up all this square footage and a lifestyle they’ve been used to,” says Ellis. “We’re changing that notion and making it comfortable for them to come into a community that is going to have amenities they enjoyed at home. Plus, we’re giving them a place where they can socialize, develop new friendships, and take advantage of all these amenities. It’s almost like every day is a vacation at this beautiful resort.”
An easy choice for those with elevated standards and higher expectations.
There is so much Sonata Lake Mary will offer, including oversized apartments with open floor plans, high ceilings, deluxe kitchens with quartz countertops, and walk-in closets. Many apartments also feature outdoor terraces custom-made for Florida living. Residents will enjoy gourmet dining venues, a full-service bar, theatre, spa, and fitness center. Expansive outdoor Florida-style living spaces include a resort poolside bar and bistro, pickle ball court, putting greens, dog park, and pet spa.  
One of the most pleasant surprises is the best-in-its-class, virtual indoor golf simulator that caters to the active senior lifestyle. “Our residents will be able to practice or play indoors,” Ellis says. “It’s a really neat way for people to stay active. Lake Mary has all these beautiful golf courses, and a lot of our prospective residents are still playing. This will be a great way for them to hit balls and not feel like they’ve given up anything.”
A place to play it “safe” 
In addition to all the beauty throughout the community, Sonata Lake Mary will incorporate the latest in purpose-built design, safety, and innovations. Residents will experience enhanced touchless technology and heightened disinfection and air purification systems that have become synonymous with Sonata’s Sonata Safe philosophy.    
"Safety is our new normal, and hospitality is at the center of all Sonata Senior Living Communities," said Shelley Esden, COO of Sonata Senior Living. "Sonata Lake Mary will purposely combine the two to deliver a modern-day building that puts the needs of our residents first while aligning with the expectations of today’s seniors who desire more choices." 
Access to World-Class Care
As part of the Lake Mary Wellness and Technology Park, Sonata will be an essential component of the overall design to create a sustainable live, work, and medical wellness town center. “We are building a community within a community, and our presence in the park places emphasis on wellness in senior living, which is something we are passionate about," said Esden. 
Sonata’s multi-lifestyle rental-based model will also provide a level of care and comfort for seniors looking to “Expect More,” one of Sonata Lake Mary’s key marketing lines. “The fact that we offer multiple lifestyles means our residents can age in place,” Ellis added. “Plus, our rental model means there are no large upfront buy-in fees. Residents can enjoy their hard-earned retirement without worrying about handing over a large sum of money to someone else.”
The buzz around Sonata Lake Mary is palpable. Designed for modern seniors who prefer the convenience of all-inclusive, worry-free retirement living, Sonata Lake Mary brings an exciting menu of social, recreational, and wellness choices every day.
“Just come in, enjoy your best life, and be as active as you want to be,” Brooke says. “You’ll make great friends, build camaraderie, and get socialization. You’ll be in a community surrounded by other residents who become your friends and neighbors, and our staff will become like family.”
