Apartments and Emphasis
on Security Bring Retirees to Age-Restricted Community in New Haven,
Located on a ridge in a wooded
setting roughly five miles outside of New Haven,
Connecticut (population 600,000 and home to Yale
University) is Bella Vista, an attractive apartment
community with more than 1,400 apartments in five
tall buildings. This large complex is
open to anyone age 55 or over, although some of the
apartments have income eligibility
requirements. Rents are quite affordable, and
all general resident services are included in the
monthly rental price.
Bella Vista skews to an older demographic, and
security is taken seriously. The New Haven Police Department
has a substation on the property, and the grounds are monitored by
closed circuit television. The parking areas are monitored,
and the lush grounds are patrolled 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week. Each apartment has an emergency alarm system in the bedroom(s) and
Meals are not provided by Bella Vista, but many
other services are located on-site (and there are community groups
that will provide meals to residents if needed). A deli,
a bank, a food market, a library, a pharmacy, a beauty salon and
several medical clinics, including HeartCare Associates of
Connecticut and the Fair Haven Medical Group, are on-site.
These services are not included in the rent, but use of the
recreation center, involvement in organized social events/leisure
activities and use of gardening plots are included.
community organizes trips, block parties, educational programs and
fund raisers, and resident service coordinators welcome new
residents, advocate for residents, provide dispute resolution,
services mediate family conferences and offer guidance and referrals for
those considering assisted living.
Panoramic views greet residents as Bella Vista
overlooks the Quinnipiac River, the New Haven skyline and a golf
course. New Haven is home to shopping, theaters, museums, the
Yale campus, restaurants and just about anything else one could
need, including the prominent Yale University-affiliated Yale-New Haven Hospital. The Yale Medical Group, comprised of
800 physicians on staff at the Yale School of Medicine, offers
advanced care to patients in more than 100 specialties, including
organ transplantation, minimally invasive surgery, diabetes
treatment and cutting-edge cancer therapies.
New Haven weather is not ideal but not
intolerable. Summer temperatures can reach the 90s, and
humidity averages 70%. The city receives 4 to 5 inches
of precipitation per month, some of which is snow from November to
March. Winter temperatures are generally in the 20s and
30s. The sun shines about 50% of the time.
Bella Vista is owned and managed by Carabetta
a well-respected company with nearly 60 years of experience in
operating affordable family and senior housing. They have
properties throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts.
