BAKERSFIELD, California – Rosewood, a Bakersfield senior living community, was recently named an official Certified Center for Successful Aging (CSA) by Masterpiece Living (MPL), a specialty group committed to helping older adults age in a better way. This recognition is awarded to forward-thinking, progressive leaders in the field of aging who are actively committed to furthering the successful aging movement.
“What a great honor to be named a Certified Center for Successful Aging! Today’s seniors live purposeful lives, and expect forward-thinking programming and services so they can age successfully,” said Ellen Renner, executive director at Rosewood. “We’ve equipped residents and team members with tools to do just that, and we hope to not only set a positive example for senior organizations in Bakersfield, but also to organizations across the country.”
This certification is awarded to senior living communities that meet qualitative and quantitative criteria that reflect integration of successful aging principles in the areas of culture, outreach, leadership, team member engagement, resident engagement and purposeful programming.
Rosewood is among eight other communities in the country to achieve this certification and one of two ABHOW (American Baptist Homes of the West) communities to become certified.
