Belden Forest Court is a unique senior retirement community situated on 10 park-like acres near the center of Simsbury. Director Tony Uanino is a licensed Community Association Manager with the State of Connecticut and is responsible for staffing and maintaining all aspects of running the community.

Tony previously served on the Board of Directors for the Simsbury Chamber of Commerce and has been on the Chili Challenge Task Force since it began 3 years ago. Tony graduated from Marist College and, prior to Belden Forest Court, he held management positions with both Marriott and Enterprise Rent-a-Car.

He leads a staff of 12 full- and part-time employees whose mission is the safety and well-being of the residents living in the 44 units in the Belden Forest Court community. Tony and his staff are committed to the belief that the retirement years can be the most fulfilling years of life.

Belden Forest Court offers safety, 24-hour staff on-call, comfort, and a deep sense of community. Belden Forest Court is not a nursing home, assisted living or medical facility. It is expected that residents will be able to live independently with the services and amenities provided and, except for occasional illness, will be able to take care of themselves. Staff is available to help with the simple things that so often need attention and will listen when residents need someone to talk to, making any larger issues seem a bit easier to handle. The staff takes great pride in building relationships with the residents to give them a warm, loving home.

Residents enjoy access to a wide variety of social and recreational programs including luncheons at local restaurants, on-site socials, birthday parties, bingo, and card games. Belden Forest Court also offers guest speakers, sessions with local therapy dogs and the Girl Scouts, wellness clinics, Saturday movie matinees, musical entertainment and more.

Belden Forest Court's shuttle van makes regular trips to the local senior center and area shops, making having a car unnecessary. For those who want to continue driving, designated parking spaces are assigned, and there is ample guest parking. All activities are optional. Each residents' individual comfort and privacy are respected.

The building is designed for comfort and convenience. Common areas and other units are accessible from inside the building so inclement weather is never a problem. Some units have direct walk-out access outside from decks and patios. The large community room has tables and chairs, a television and DVD/VCR player, and wifi access. Adjacent to it is a library where residents can borrow books, read, or have a quiet chat with a friend. There is also a large dining room for social activities that involve refreshments. There is a beauty shop and free laundry facilities on site as well.

Belden Forest Court is a smoke-free building where residents choose from a variety of floor plans, including studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. All utilities, except phone and cable are included in the monthly condo fee. All units have a fully-appointed kitchen and bath, wall-to-wall carpet or wood floors, air conditioning and heat, individual temperature controls, emergency call buttons, smoke detectors, private deck or patio, ample parking, weekly housekeeping and linen service.

Moving to a retirement community is a big decision. People interested in Belden Forest Court should plan on visiting so that they can view the available units, tour the community and meet some of the people who live and work there. Belden Forest Court offers seniors a quality lifestyle and services at reasonable prices.  They are located at 40 Firetown Road and can be reached at 860-651-0438.
