Tessera is the Latin word for individual tile. A tile that when combined with other tiles creates a beautiful mosaic.

Well, the beautiful mosaic that is Tessera of Brandon is complete. And the future of senior living looks better than ever. To see exactly how Tessera of Brandon has put all the pieces together, you can attend the Grand Opening Celebration on Thursday, April 26 from 4 to 7 pm.

Your warm welcome starts in the bold lobby that features a vaulted ceiling, with natural light pouring through the floor-to-ceiling windows, a rare design feature here in Florida. And the celebration continues in the outdoor living areas, such as the landscaped walking paths, gazebo, fire pit and dog park. "Our goal is to have residents live to their full potential here. And our programs exist to make that possible," says Brooke Britton, general manager of Tessera of Brandon. At the core of Tessera's "full potential" lifestyle are proprietary holistic approaches to aging called SalusTM and ValeoTM. These approaches are guided by a desire to achieve three essential things for each resident: honor your legacy, respect your personal goals and empower you to create the life you want.

While other senior living communities offer cookie-cutter programs, Salus and Valeo are customized with a deep understanding of each individual's social, intellectual, spiritual and physical strengths. The result is a more rewarding, engaged and active lifestyle.

As for amenities, Tessera of Brandon feels more like a luxury hotel than assisted living. You can choose from a variety of apartment layouts (all bright and modern), enjoy multiple dining venues that are open from 7 am to 7 pm, take advantage of a state-of-the-art fitness center, and use our transportation services for shopping, medical appointments and day trips. There's also weekly housekeeping and personal laundry services.

"We're ready to open our doors to residents, and do everything necessary to help them become a part of this gorgeous and energetic community," Britton says. The first step, Britton adds, is inviting everyone to the Grand Opening Celebration on April 26 at 1320 Oakfield Drive, Brandon, Florida. It will be a festive event complete with live music and great food at 4 pm with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
