BELLA VISTA, Ark. (December 8, 2015) – This month Concordia Retirement Center will celebrate its 43rd year as a local landmark serving Northwest Arkansas seniors with innovative independent living and assisted living services.

A vital member of the Bella Vista community, the Concordia campus has undergone a number of beautiful renovations and service upgrades since it first opened in 1972. Over the past few years, Concordia has modernized with significant exterior, common area and apartment renovations. The landscape and grounds have also seen renovation.

The 28-acre campus, located off Lancashire and Chelsea, offers both independent and assisted living with a variety of options. Residents have a choice between two- and three-bedroom townhomes along with one- and two-bedroom apartment suites. Concordia boasts the largest independent apartment suites in Northwest Arkansas, ranging from 455 square feet to 932 square feet, while the thirty-five townhomes on campus are larger offering 1,500 square feet. For those needing more care, Concordia remodeled its Catered Living facility, which offers assisted living services and daily activities in spacious studio apartments.

“For 43 years, Concordia Retirement Center residents have enjoyed a first-class lifestyle on a beautiful campus surrounded by an excellent team providing high levels of service. We really are Bella Vista’s top destination for the senior lifestyle, care and comfort,” says Barry Ray, president of Legacy Senior Services, which manages Concordia Retirement Center. “It is a special honor for us to serve Northwest Arkansas’ ‘greatest generation’ with honor, respect, faith and integrity--as well as their families. We are truly blessed by this privilege.”

“The staff is truly what has made Concordia what it is today,” says Jeff Tonack, executive director of Concordia Retirement Center. “Our department heads average nearly eight years’ tenure, with several exceeding 10 years at Concordia. Our support staff averages nearly five years of employment, and monthly training allows us to improve professional skills and service levels continually. And it shows in their hard work and unparalleled dedication to our residents. We encourage the Northwest Arkansas community to visit Concordia. You will see why we say, ‘We have the heart, you make it home’.”

Concordia’s life enrichment program provides residents a daily opportunity to laugh, learn and enjoy life. The new 23-passenger bus provides transportation to the lake, special dinners at nearby restaurants, ball games, fishing, and all types of fun and enjoyment, as well as doctor appointments and daily errands. "In my 25 years of operating communities like Concordia, this is one of the best and most active life enrichment social programs I have ever seen," Ray commented.

The Plus program provides assistance to Concordia’s independent living residents as needed for routine needs such as medication reminders or help dressing.
