Louisville, KY, March 3, 2020 – The Grand Senior Living, a new luxury community owned by Civitas Senior Living and Guttman Properties and managed by Civitas, is now open in Prospect, Kentucky. The community is located near the popular Norton Commons neighborhood.

“At Civitas Senior Living, we are passionate about community,” said Wayne Powell, Founder and CEO of Civitas. “We are thrilled to be a part of and contribute to a beautiful neighborhood like Norton Commons as well as a great overall community like Prospect.” This passion was on full display at The Grand’s Great Gatsby-inspired grand opening where more than 200 guests wore their Roaring 20s best, danced to music from The Sycamore Trio, and enjoyed delicious fare from The Grand’s dining staff.

The new, approximately 191,832 square foot luxury senior living community is located at 9300 Civic Way just north of Interstate 71 and on the south side of Norton Commons, mere minutes away the celebrated neighborhood’s numerous restaurants, retail services, annual festivals, and more. The Grand features 91 independent living, 62 personal care, and 24 memory care residences.

Bathed in historic grey blues and cream hues, The Grand sports a decidedly southern tone from its locally sourced antiques to its grand chandelier in the lobby. “We spent over two years to procure unique pieces – both locally and internationally – for The Grand, something rarely seen in today’s senior living communities,” said Reid Bonner, President of Senior By Design. “The result is a community that feels like a well-lived, elegant home straight from the pages of Southern Living magazine.”

Other distinctive touches found at The Grand include the Filly Lounge adorned with historic Kentucky Derby inspired accessories and pastel art by renowned photographer Wink Gaines, a framed collection of vintage bathing suits in the indoor pool, a vibrant display of Chihuly-like, hand-blown, glass art in the dining room, and 16 custom-designed living spaces featuring original artwork and one-of-a-kind accessories.

The luxury doesn’t stop there. The Grand also features upscale amenities and services not often found in senior living communities including an indoor heated pool, bocce ball court, putting green, billiards room, creative arts studio, dog spa, full-service salon, on-site concierge services, restaurant-style dining options, cocktail lounges, and a gallery showcasing a frequently rotating collection of art. “Our mission wasn’t to create just another senior living community,” said Powell. “Our passion is our residents, and we want them to enjoy the love and uniqueness we put into The Grand.”

Ian Guttman, CEO of Guttman Properties, echoes that sentiment. “We all want the best for our parents and grandparents as they age because we love them. Studies have shown that seniors who live in housing that offers a resort-like experience feel connected to their community and have a better quality of life,” said Guttman. “Our mission with The Grand is to provide a high-end, resort lifestyle with the best as-needed, heartfelt care so that all of our residents can live life to the fullest.”

At the heart of The Grand is Civitas Senior Living’s signature Passion Program providing residents rich, full lives brimming with social engagements, fun activities, and personalized experiences propelled by attentive caregivers, overall wellness, and delicious food. “We believe that life is best when days are filled with passion and lived with purpose,” said Powell. Civitas’s revolutionary Passion Program keeps residents active and involved by enjoying memorable moments and celebratory events. Civitas’ Passion Program is the cornerstone of the 41 senior living communities it manages across the U.S.

The Grand Senior Living is fully licensed and now open. For more information or to schedule a tour, please call (502) 233-3855 or visit
