Retirement homes can be mundane and frankly, a little depressing. For your dear loved ones, Inspiring Carnegie Hill in New York is redefining the care and quality of life of seniors entering a new phase of their lives.

Inspiring Carnegie Hill, developed by Maplewood retirement home and Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc., on the Upper East Side of Manhattan is a 23-story tower designed by Handel Architects.
“We wanted to create the next-generation concept for urban seniors living at a luxury level, a concept with more focus on design, culture and lifestyle,” said Gregory D. Smith, President and CEO of the management of Maplewood Senior Living and Inspīr.
There are three care programs, Sol (assisted living), Terra (enhanced care) and Oceana (memory care), ranging from as-needed to full-time care with personalized medical and wellness programs. There are 215 private residences, which range from studios to two bedrooms, and each level of care is grouped together. There are also a number of penthouses.

Each apartment is equipped with the latest smart technology, ensuring that all needs, from healthcare and restaurants to concierge services, are right at your fingertips.
Luxurious materials, such as marble, as well as clever chandeliers make the building a great place to live.

It is not enough to have beautiful living spaces. Inspīr also provides high-level medical care through partnerships with Mount Sinai, Spear Physical Therapy, dentist Dr. Alisa Kauffman, psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Snow, Iowa Sports, Sollis Health and Namaste Wellness.
“Previously, senior housing developers couldn’t compete in high-barrier entry markets because the demand and customer base weren’t there,” Smith said. “Now, with the aging baby boomers coming to maturity, the demand is there. They expect more and are willing and able to pay more for their senior living experience. As the aging population continues to demand a vibrant lifestyle with social and cultural opportunities, the demand for luxury senior housing will continue to drive market growth. “
