Describe the overall population of assisted living residents at Thrive at Jones Farm. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?
Our folks come from all over that is the beauty of living in Huntsville! We have transplants as well as Huntsville natives. Our residents range from early 70's to 95. Although we are licensed as an Assisted Living Community, we have several residents that live with us independently and when they need a little extra help they can get it at any time. This allows them to age in place without having to move suites. It's about seizing the day. Every day. It's about finding a passion that percolates you so much that you can't wait to get out of bed each morning to get started. At Thrive, residents engage in events and activities they've always loved, along with new friends they've made who love them as much as they do.

About Thrive at Jones Farm
We’ve taken the blueprint for traditional senior living and put it right where it belongs—the trash can. It wasn’t hard. Traditional senior living communities stink. We believe that if a community’s focus is strictly on care, they don’t care enough.
We have two living options under one roof.
Assisted Living is ideal for residents who value their independence but may need a bit of help from time to time. Our community team members are raving fans of encouraging independence with assistance readily accessible at all times of day.
Memory Care is for our Elders who are living with some form of memory loss. Every member of the Thrive at Jones Farm team is NIDE (National Institute for Dementia Education) certified. That includes everyone from the chefs and housekeepers to the concierge and nurses. The education allows us to interact with our memory care residents as unique individuals rather than objects in need of care. Residents are engaged with the goal of helping them recapture moments of memories and the recognition of loved ones.
At Thrive, we’ve dedicated our lives to ensure there is a purpose in every breath of each resident we’re honored to serve. We understand that Elders and their loved ones depend on us not only to live but to live well. It’s a challenge we welcome – every day.
