 The Finest Memory Care & Assisted Living in Aventura, Florida

Welcome to resort-style living! Our eight-story building is in an unbeatable location, near many attractions and resources and just five miles from the beach. Offering Aventura Assisted Living and Memory Care services, our dedicated staff here at The Sterling Aventura would like to welcome you and your family to give us a call or pay us a visit. We would be more than happy to show you what our wonderful community has to offer!

Rediscover the finer things in life

When our team takes care of life’s necessities, you have more time to enjoy life’s pleasures. Every floor of our community features a common social area where residents often meet before starting their day. There is plenty to do and explore, whether in our arts and crafts room, library, computer room, card rooms, the bar, or the surround-sound theater. We offer open dining in our elegant dining room, so feel free to drop in and order a fresh, locally sourced meal or snack when you’re feeling hungry. Looking to get out and explore? We have a valet and full-time driver on staff to take you wherever you want or need to go. Resident favorites include Aventura Art and Cultural Center, the Adrienne Arsht Center, South Beach, and the casino!

Care that’s always there

We provide dog walking and grooming, dry cleaning, a beauty salon and barbershop, housekeeping services, and transportation. We also have a state-of-the-art rehabilitation gym and physical, occupational, and speech therapy available.

Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. Our Assisted Living and Memory Care community in Aventura offers spacious apartments with different floor plan options and a number of amenities described below.

“I am an 89 year old single male, who has been a resident of the Sterling for two and a half years. My points of view are strictly my own and I will try to do my best to describe what I think about the place. I made the decision to come to the Sterling after some very serious losses. I lost my wife, my vision, and had other difficulties within a short period of time. Two month after it all happen, I called my friend Jack who had been living at the Sterling for a few years. During that time Jack and I had met frequently and he always made favorable comments about the Sterling. I asked Jack to make an appointment for me to move in. I met with Barry Ger, the marketing director, a very bright guy, who offered an answer to each of my problems. We had several, very good meetings, and Barry delivered in all his promises. I will say I am a member of a minority of the population, who could be called the group of “the willing”. I welcome the opportunity to move in to the Sterling, as opposed to the majority of the population could be called the “unwilling group”. I would say that the major portion of the success of the Sterling goes to its management group. I can say that Mary Buchanan, the Executive Director, Barry Ger, The Director of Marketing and Cathy Finkelstein the Activities Director, are a group of hard working, “hands on” executives, who do an excellent job of consistently trying to improve the lifestyle and comfort of the residents. Each is totally involved in the operation of the Sterling. I view the Sterling as a form of communal living, rather than the harsh vision of assisted living facilities. I think the strongest talking points are the activities. Its 7 day, round the clock of activities has something to offer to everyone. The highlight of every day is the 3:30 to 4:30 happy hour, which includes some beverages and entertainment. The Happy Hour brings almost the entire population together in a festive setting giving the residents something to look forward to. In the dining room there is open seating. The result is that you get to meet most of the resident. Over this period of time, I found out that a few of the residents had migrated to the Sterling from similar facilities and the common denominator was that the other facilities didn’t offer as many activities as the Sterling does. There was very little for them to do during the day. The management team does its up most to help the residents to become involved as much as possible. Speaking personally, I was thrilled to find, when I came to Sterling, that there is twice a week Texas Holdem poker game, but when I sat to play I found that I couldn’t read the cards. Cathy, on her own, when on the internet, and found “low Vision Playing cards”. A week later she came back to me and said I want to test you. She pulled one of the new decks and started dealing, and sure enough I was able to join the game. This is just one example of the many things that Cathy has done for me and other residents to help out and make us happy. She goes above and beyond for the residents and this is an attitude that is widely held by the management team, to make our lives better. I am very grateful to share my feelings about the Sterling and would like to leave you with a happy though: I tried to find some negatives and I had great difficulty coming up with any.” – Norman

“The staff at The Sterling can’t be beat. And it starts from the top- Mary rocks!!! We have my mom-in-law in a similar facility in the Washington, DC area. What a difference several states make! Talk about southern hospitality. The Sterling culture is friendly and its apparent that they’re interesting in building deep relationships with residents & their families. There is no cookie-cutter approach to care here, they make it clear that every resident is unique with their own set of needs. Bravo!” – Mitch A

“My mother fought the idea of assisted living for many years and I had been convinced that she would go downhill in new, unfamiliar surroundings. But the staff was so welcoming and accomodating and she soon began to feel like this was her home. Surprisingly, her physical and mental health has improved! She enjoys the activities, has a new best friend and I attribute her improved memory with the brain health class she took here. The staff and management are extremely dedicated and always approachable.” – Barbara

“We were delighted to visit the Sterling Aventura while in the region. We were looking at assisted living facilities in the area for my friend’s mother. Our tour of the outside grounds was lovely; there were flowers and shrubs everywhere, with nice seating areas. The staff was very friendly and all seemed to really like their jobs. The main living areas were fresh, clean and sunny with a contemporary, yet homey décor. The outside area is ample, with plenty of seating areas to enjoy. The variety of activities offered was impressive. The staff goes out of its way to suggest stimulating things to do – from reading and playing games to outings in the community. The lunch meal we saw looked really delicious. The menus looked like they offered an extensive array of nutritious foods, including snacks. The private rooms we viewed were all very clean, well-kept and inviting – kind of resembling what you might find at a hotel but more personal. The exercise room was large and had a variety of options to choose from, including classes and equipment. We liked that they provide emergency call pendants and have emergency pull cords in the bathrooms. The library had a large book selection and there was a convenient salon. We really didn’t notice anything missing – it looked like everything seniors need to live well was right there.”
