MBK Senior Living’s the Wellington Wins Seventh Best of State Award in Utah

Irvine, Calif. (April 30, 2018) The Wellington, a senior living community in Salt Lake City, received its seventh Best of State Award, which recognizes outstanding individuals, organizations, and businesses in Utah. This year’s award is in the Independent Senior Living category. Best of State winners demonstrate achievement and excellence in their field of endeavor, producing superior results and outcomes.

The Wellington residents couldn’t be prouder of the community for earning this distinction. “We deserve it here, we really do! We are number one!” says Rosemary Yuhasz, who has lived at The Wellington for six years. “I chose The Wellington after touring several places. I walked in here, and it immediately felt like home. And after all these years, I still feel the same way!”

Joyce Degraaf, another resident at The Wellington, feels “terrific” about the award. When it came to choosing a place to live, she says, “I wanted a community that was established. I feel comfortable knowing that I am able to get care when I am no longer independent. I also love having everything I need in one community, like activities, meals, and transportation.”

“I would say that my living at The Wellington has been the best thing that has happened since I had to move somewhere, and I plan to stay here forever,” said Yuhasz. “Does that tell you anything?”

According to Executive Director, Scott Ambrose, The Wellington has a longstanding and excellent reputation in the area for exceptional care, services and programming. While new competitors have entered the market, Ambrose says The Wellington remains in high demand.

“There are a number of options available to seniors in today’s housing market but The Wellington stands the test of time,” said Ambrose. “Complementing our rich history of quality care and service is a dedication to continuously improve and modify amenities, programs and services to meet the needs and preferences of our residents. To have earned our 7th Best in State award tells us we’re on the right track.”
