A Message From Our Executive Director, Mark Kastan

Thank you for taking the time to consider The Colonnades as your future home. At The Colonnades, you will find we provide a welcoming environment for people who want to reconnect with their active lifestyle, or enhance their current one. We invite you to experience for yourself the energy, activities and choices that await you.

Since opening our doors in 1991, The Colonnades has been a true landmark for senior living. Our community is nestled amongst 59 acres and is conveniently located close to businesses, hospitals and shopping in the Charlottesville area. Additionally, our close proximity to the University of Virginia allows our residents to enjoy a wide variety of intellectual, cultural and social activities, both inside and outside the community.

At The Colonnades, residents enjoy a lifestyle of freedom, independence and unsurpassed quality with none of the work or worry. Our community never fails to make a lasting impression, and residents are proud to have their family and friends visit.

In addition, whether you are looking for yourself or a family member, we offer continuing care based on you or your loved one’s needs, including Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and our Rehabilitation and Recovery Program. We take pride in knowing each of our residents receive personalized services tailored to their individual needs and desires.

I have been in the hospitality business for more than 25 years, working in high-end operations such as the Sheraton, Marriott and Ritz-Carlton hotels. I am proud to have been in senior living at The Colonnades for more than 16 years. I use these experiences to help craft my expectations for quality accommodations, exceptional service, fine dining and superior medical care throughout our community.

I am also proud of the longevity of our team members. Their added experience and knowledge help enhance our residents’ lifestyle because of their kindness, caring hearts, and dedication to our residents.

Come and experience what The Colonnades has to offer!

Best Wishes!
