In August, United Church Homes unveiled Trinity Communities of Greater Dayton, announcing its four senior living communities in the Miami Valley will operate under the Trinity name as it works to evolve services for tomorrow’s older adults. Together, the four communities offer a full range of senior living and healthcare options for adults 55 and older.
UCH also renamed Patriot Ridge Community as Trinity Community at Fairborn, which rededicated its café as the Café at Patriot Ridge to honor its longstanding veteran relationships. Trinity at Fairborn has the same dedicated staff but now joins sister communities Trinity Community at Beavercreek, Trinity Community at Fairwood, located in Beavercreek, and Trinity Community at Miami Township in providing services to the region.
UCH has served older adults in greater Dayton for over 45 years at Trinity at Beavercreek, at the former Patriot Ridge since 2001, at Trinity Community at Fairwood since 2016 and at Trinity Community at Miami Township since May of this year.
Trinity at Beavercreek is in the final construction phase for 30 two-bedroom independent living cottages. It also offers independent and assisted living apartments, short-term rehab, memory care and long-term skilled care. Trinity Community at Fairborn provides assisted living, short-term rehab and long-term skilled care along with memory care. The other two communities serve independent living residents.
Senior living options are evolving rapidly to meet older adults’ changing needs. Many people are remaining at home longer, and those who do opt for a retirement community are usually seeking an easier lifestyle and the fellowship of others. Making a move is a big decision, and people generally don’t want to move more than once.
“Our Dayton communities offer flexible living options and levels of care combined with an enriching community life,” said Rev. Kenneth Daniel, president and CEO. “We aim to meet people wherever they are on life’s journey, and that requires expanding our menu of services for a growing population of older adults who want more choices.”
Laura Farrell, senior executive director of senior living services, is excited about the changes.
“We understand that every person has unique needs, and that means our approach to serving them is highly personalized,” she said. “We’re able to coordinate care needs across our four communities, which gives residents and families options and peace of mind.”
Combining all four Trinity communities under one banner is expected to lead to additional collaborations that will benefit older adults in the Miami Valley.
