GLADWYNE, Pa., May 23, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rosette, an entirely new alternative to senior care located on the prestigious Main Line in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, has officially opened its doors and welcomed its first residents. Inspired by a "pod"-like senior living concept found on the West Coast, Rosette is a single-family home that has been updated and restored for a limited number of eight immobile or otherwise disabled seniors so they can live and receive assistance together as a group.

Rosette’s licensed personal care model, based on real-life family living, is constant, authentic and non-judgmental. With full-time caregivers in the home 24/7, Rosette has the lowest care provider-to-resident ratio on the Main Line. Trained caregivers, including an on-site nurse, assure the safety, wellbeing, and engagement of residents. Rosette is also partnered with home palliative care, home hospice care, and mobile medical services.

"Rosette feels like home because it is a home," said Therese Farrow Southwell, Founder of Rosette. "We specifically designed Rosette to recreate the feel of family in a peaceful, secure environment for families that struggle to find the right solution for their disabled loved ones. Nothing at Rosette is clinical or institutional. When it’s not practical or safe for your loved ones to live with family, our passionate and experienced team steps in and cares for them like they were our own, building trust and creating relationships in an intimate, family-like atmosphere."

Rosette is the first of its kind in Montgomery County. Close to family and friends for visits and within easy reach of top health care providers, the home is completely walker- and wheelchair-compatible and offers eight bedrooms with private, ADA-equipped bathrooms, a real residential kitchen where residents take part in the cooking process and enjoy home-cooked organic meals together, a home salon, and beautifully maintained gardens and grounds. Rosette’s unique food menu was developed by Julie Lichtman RD, LDN, one of the area’s top medical dieticians, with each meal customized for an individual’s specific needs. Residents enjoy easy-to-manage activities and meaningful conversation in the comfort of home, not far from their rooms. Rosette also equips all residents with wristbands that monitor health vitals and daily activities, provide access to families from home, and enable residents to contact caregivers with the touch of a button.
