A Garden Party To Remember

Stepping onto the grounds of StoneRidge, guests were transported to an elegant garden party. Colorful blooms adorned every corner while the melodies of The Cartells, a local jazz ensemble, filled the air, inviting residents to dance the afternoon away.

As friends and neighbors, dressed in their finest summer attire, mingled and shared stories, an assortment of delicious refreshments added to the festive atmosphere.

Joyful conversations filled the afternoon air, creating an ambiance of warmth and camaraderie under the afternoon sun. It was a beautiful celebration of the bonds, both old and new, that make StoneRidge a true home.

Where Retirements Bloom and Friendships Flourish

At StoneRidge, community isn’t just a word; it’s a way of life. With more than 300 residents calling our community home, there are countless opportunities to forge meaningful connections.

Whether it’s sharing a laugh over dinner, exploring shared interests in one of the many clubs or lending a helping hand during challenging times, the bonds of friendship run deep here.

“Sports, the Arts, humor, compassion, and friendship along with an extraordinary staff, combine to make StoneRidge a special place called home.” – Kitsy Garfield, resident for 20 years

The 20th-anniversary celebration was a testament to this spirit of togetherness. Residents who  met years ago at StoneRidge reminisced about shared experiences, while newer members of the community embraced the opportunity to create lasting memories.

Meet Saren and Derick

Many years ago, two 17-year-old kids at a party in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, shared a dance. Their friendship endured through the years, encompassing their spouses and significant others.

Years after that first dance in Pennsylvania, their lives eventually took them to Hartford, Connecticut, and nearby Stonington Borough, where they continued to cut a rug at countless social events.

Now in their 90s, both of those kids were present to celebrate StoneRidge’s 20th anniversary. As the band began to play Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline”, Saren turned to Derick and said, “Let’s dance!” And they danced again.

It was a heartwarming reminder that at StoneRidge, everyone is part of a larger family, a tapestry woven together by shared laughter, purpose, and a commitment to living life to the fullest.

A Legacy of Compassionate Care

At the heart of StoneRidge’s 20-year legacy lies an unwavering commitment to compassionate care. A team of dedicated professionals, driven by a deep understanding of individual needs, ensures that every resident feels valued and supported.

“The biggest reason I’m still working at StoneRidge after 20 years is that I love my job and it is the veritable truth! Where else do you get to work with people you consider family, both residents and staff, and spend the day having fun? I Love everything about StoneRidge and, if it is up to me, I will still be working here in another 20 years!” – Matt Haut, Director of Culinary Services
