This $80 million project is privately owned and funded.
“Five years ago, the developer of this project reached out to me, which made me think it’s very important for the South Asian community to have similar services. I tried my best to make this project a reality, and here we are today, after five years, on the groundbreaking ceremony for this project.” Pat Fortini said.
The name Jeevan Niwas translates to “Life Home,” reflecting our mission to help individuals age in place and be an inclusive and welcoming home for life. At Jeevan Niwas, residents will be provided with a choice of lifestyles that include flexible care, housekeeping, exceptional dining with dedicated kitchens catering to specific dietary requirements, organized activities, excellent amenities, social events and cultural/religious excursions.
“It is high time that our South Asian community has services and support that caters to our seniors and provides them with a place they can call ‘Home,’ ” said Sandeep Dhupar, the managing partner of Jeevan Niwas. The retirement village is set to open in the summer of 2024. It will create a community that matches the unique values, culture, languages and culinary practices of the South Asian population.
