HJ Sims is pleased to serve as sole underwriter for TJH Senior Living, LLC, an affiliate of The Jewish Home for the Elderly of Fairfield County, Inc. d/b/a Jewish Senior Services (JSS), an organization with approximately 50 years experience providing senior care to Connecticut residents. The Jewish Home for the Elderly provides a full range of services on The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Campus in Bridgeport, CT, which includes a 294-bed skilled nursing facility and 32-bed assisted living and memory care as the only household model community in the State of Connecticut. It currently has a 5-star rating from The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

TJH Senior Living, LLC is planning to develop, own, and operate a continuing care retirement community (a “CCRC”) on 15 acres of land in Stamford, Connecticut currently planned to consist of 168 independent living units, 14 assisted living units, 14 memory care units, and 14 skilled nursing beds, as well as common and administrative and support areas to be known as The Dogwoods @ Long Ridge. The community amenity space will include multiple dining venues, bar, bistro, a fitness center, a yoga studio, a salon, physical therapy gym, a wellness center, theatre, and various multipurpose rooms.

The community will be a Type A Entrance Fee Life Plan Community offering both refundable and amortizing Entrance Fee plans to prospective residents. Residents will also pay a Monthly Service Fee which will be used to fund the operations of the community, including food service, facilities maintenance, housekeeping, management, utility costs, and debt service. The amount of the Entrance Fee and Monthly Service Fee will vary based on the type and location of the Independent Living Unit.

The BANs will be secured by a first mortgage on the 15-acre property in Stamford, appraised at $27.1 million in February 2022 by Senior Living Valuation Services, Inc. (SLVS). Founded in 1991, SLVS is a San Francisco based firm that provides appraisal and consulting services to the senior housing industry.
