WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Residents are heartbroken they're forced to leaved the Esplanade Senior Living facility where they call home so new owners can repurpose the building into luxury rental apartments, according to Lohud.com.
The $35 million project will include apartments, medical offices and restaurants and was announced earlier this month by Esplanade Venture Partners, including members of the Scarf family who have owned and run the facility since the mid-1990s, added Lohud.com.
Families of residents with Alzheimer's disease and dementia were told in October by Esplanade management that Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, which had operated programs for seniors with memory issues on the fifth floor, that those services would be discontinued and residents would have to move, reports lohud.com. That issue is now in court, says Lohud.com.
