Today’s seniors are living longer, healthier lives, and their expectations of what aging should look like have drastically changed in recent years. When it comes to senior living options, older New Yorkers, and their families are looking for more than just a place to live, they are looking for an exceptional lifestyle complete with immersive experiences, luxury accommodations, 5-star hospitality, and world-class care. They can find all of that and more at Inspīr Carnegie Hill, a new senior residence soon to open on the Upper East Side.

Located at 1802 Second Avenue, Inspīr Carnegie Hill was created specifically for older residents in metropolitan areas who require assisted living, memory care, or advanced care options. Every detail of Inspīr Carnegie Hill has been carefully considered to create a transformative living experience that caters to their every want and need.

Proudly designed by Handel Architects, an award-winning firm whose work in New York includes the National September 11 Memorial and the Dream Downtown Hotel, the residence was purposefully designed to promote health and wellness as well as harmony and connectedness for residents, families, and staff.

Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping cityscape views and ample natural light. Wood finishing, stone accents, and lush gardens keep residents close to nature. Every detail was considered and customized to enhance safety and promote wellbeing while keeping with the aesthetics of an upscale boutique hotel.

Amenity spaces throughout are impeccably decorated and inviting, filled with natural light and elements, that connect residents to nature and the outdoors. The residence features multiple dining venues, a skypark and lounge, open-air terraces and enclosed gardens, a fully appointed salon and spa, a fitness center, and a luxurious saltwater pool. Private apartments are spacious and offer a variety of dramatic views of the East River and city skyline. Each apartment is outfitted with cutting-edge technology to enhance day-to-day conveniences. Among the technology is a voice-activated care concierge system that can alert staff when a resident needs assistance. There is also a resident safety system featuring nurse call, fall detection, and even real-time location feature to locate loved ones in the building.

Aside from the masterful design, what truly sets Inspīr apart from other options in the city is its philosophy of vibrant, intentional living and meaningful connection. World-class care, immersive experiences, and innovative programming are all part of the experience at Inspīr Carnegie Hill.
