Stoneridge Creek Retirement Community Celebrates Grand Opening

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 6, 2013) - Stoneridge Creek Pleasanton (www.stoneridgecreek.com), the first new continuing care retirement community to be built in the San Francisco East Bay in decades, celebrated its official grand opening Friday with more than 600 new residents and their families, special guests, and local government officials in attendance. The midday event commemorated the start of new beginnings for hundreds of seniors and the official opening of Stoneridge Creek after six years of planning and construction.

Grand opening festivities for Stoneridge Creek began with a medley of historical patriotic songs by the Young American Patriots, a Pleasanton-based fife and drum corps, and the singing of the national anthem. Troy Bourne, vice president of planning for Stoneridge Creek, served as emcee for a brief, resident-oriented ceremony. Speaking on behalf of the new community were several state and local government officials as well as Patricia Kohnen. Mrs. Kohnen and her husband, Jim, were among the first people to sign up to live at Stoneridge Creek in 2007. Her remarks summed up the day for many of her fellow residents.

"I am thrilled to be one of the pioneers of Stoneridge Creek," she said. "My two sons are also very happy that I'm here. In reality, my move to Stoneridge Creek is the greatest gift I could have given them because they will never have to worry about me. I'm looking forward to a long, exciting life at my new community and to all the fun times ahead." 

"Today celebrates a tremendous achievement that's been in progress for years, from initial concept to resident move-ins," Bourne said. "Stoneridge Creek truly illustrates our vision for what a continuing care retirement community should be for seniors, and it's been brought to life by hundreds of new residents and employees as well as countless community leaders. This is a day of celebration for everyone involved with Stoneridge Creek, but especially for the residents who waited patiently and never lost faith that this dream would come true. Stoneridge Creek is their passport to better living, and we are happy to welcome them to Stoneridge Creek where they will start the most exciting chapter of their lives."

The new community features Ohlone Hall performing arts center, community library, Legacy movie theater, wine room, pool and fitness center, salon and spa, short-game golf course, tennis courts, outdoor fireplace lounge, gardens, dog park and other amenities.

Designed for people aged 60 and older, Stoneridge Creek is located at 3300 Stoneridge Creek Way. The continuing care retirement community offers a variety of housing options; a comprehensive package of services, amenities and activities including fine dining and transportation; and convenient access to assisted living and long-term nursing care services at Creekview Health Center, if ever needed.

Creekview Health Center is being constructed adjacent to Stoneridge Creek and is expected to open in 2014. The health center will be open to the residents of Stoneridge Creek as well as the outside public when space is available. Creekview is not owned by Stoneridge Creek but will provide services to Stoneridge Creek residents under a priority contract. Services will include skilled nursing, assisted living, and dementia care featuring a Memory Support Program in a specially designed Alzheimer's wing in the assisted living facility.
