The Kensington at White Plains Description

The Kensington is an enhanced assisted living and memory care residence located in the heart of White Plains, NY. It is the realization of a vision of passionate leaders in the senior living industry. This industrious group sought to develop a community that took the assisted living model of care to a higher level in an environment of comfortable elegance, staffed by loving professionals. They have accomplished just that. The Kensington is now an integral part of the White Plains community and is a lovely place many area seniors call home.

The Kensington is licensed for "“enhanced assisted living,"” which means residents do not need to move out if assisted living health care needs change or increase because we are able to offer a full spectrum of clinical support. We believe the comfort of familiarity is precious, so our unique license enables us to offer care beyond what the traditional assisted living community can deliver.

For those with Alzheimer'’s or dementia, The Kensington offers two levels of care in specially designed neighborhoods. Connections is for residents in the early to middle stages of memory loss. Haven is for residents in the middle to late stages. We understand that memory loss is a family affair, so our multifaceted program is geared to support not only residents but also those who love them.

The Kensington welcomes families, friends and visitors to stop by and say hello. Mingle with residents. Meet our team. Tell us about yourself. Let us know how we can help with assisted living or Alzheimer's and dementia care needs, now or on the horizon. Find us on the corner of Maple Avenue and Longview Avenue/Maple Avenue and Cromwell.

“Enhanced” Assisted Living Care at The Kensington in Westchester County, NY

The Kensington is an “enhanced” assisted living community in White Plains, NY. Our enhanced license differentiates us from other traditional assisted living communities. It permits us to offer a full spectrum of clinical support. As a result, residents do not need to move out of The Kensington if assisted living health care needs change or increase.

The Kensington weaves professional care in a heartfelt way into the everyday lives of residents. With a high degree of sensitivity, our caregivers help residents patiently with even the smallest of tasks; watch carefully for cues when they should lend more support; and retreat when appropriate so residents can remain as independent as possible.

We find or create ways to help residents feel comfortable, secure, happy and dignified.

We build care into the rapport we cultivate with residents. To create the best conditions for this “relationship-based” focus, we assign a primary care manager to each resident. The consistent attention of one individual keeps the continuum of familiarity intact. It also preserves meaningful routines for residents. Ultimately, the bond between residents, their care manager and the entire team deepens, and the care experience becomes pleasant and dignified rather than stressful.

Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
at The Kensington in White Plains, NY

Memory loss is life-changing for all involved, so our approach to Alzheimer’s and dementia care at The Kensington, is multifaceted. Because we empathize with residents and their loved ones who are confronting the challenges of memory loss, we offer a thoughtfully designed memory care program geared for the whole family.

Although we understand the general patterns of Alzheimer’s and dementia, we seek ways to capitalize on resident strengths, despite deterioration of recall. We help residents and families find ways to enjoy the beauty of special times, even if only moments. We honor the past, savor the present and look toward making the times that lie ahead manageable, comfortable and ultimately, peaceful.

We believe the degree of memory loss is an important consideration when providing memory care so we offer two “neighbor-hoods” our residents call home. Our 4th floor, Connections, is for residents in the early to middle stages of dementia.

Our 5th floor, Haven, is for residents in the middle to late stages. Unlike traditional nursing home facilities of the past, the Connections and Haven neighborhoods are cozy environments where residents can feel comfortable and secure and where loving professionals can accommodate specific needs that accompany each stage of disease progression.

When a loved one lives at The Kensington, we encourage family and friends to visit as often as possible and to lean on us for support whenever needed. We know that by sharing caregiving responsibility, families are more free to enjoy the pleasure of time spent together. Also, because we are equipped to handle health care needs, families get the added benefit of peace of mind and confidence that their loved one is in capable, professional hands.

Our Director of Memory Care, Mandy Habig, welcomes the chance to answer your questions about Alzheimer's and dementia care at The Kensington.
