MEET OUR STAFF
Welcome! My family and I opened Rockport in 1995 so area seniors could have an affordable alternative to living alone. We started out as a retirement community, but as our residents aged in place, it became apparent that a little extra care was now needed.
Since February of 2009, we are a licensed facility offering our residents Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Elder Daycare options. This allows our residents to age in place, as customized assistance can be added without having to move to another facility. You can stay in your new home, with your new family, and never have to move again.
And speaking of family, we're still proud to be family-owned, operated and managed on a daily basis. Many of our staff members have been with us since those early days, and we think of them as family, too. We take good care of our staff and in return, they care for our residents like their own family.
Come by for a visit sometime and see for yourself why Rockport is one of the most affordable and social communities on the west side of Cleveland. You may even catch me in the lobby chatting with some of my many extended family members!
We've been respecting seniors and their families since 1995.
--Mr. Xenophon Zapis, Founder, Rockport Senior Living
Rockport offers the Medicaid waiver program. This means as our residents age in place and need additional services, they have the option of applying for Medicaid assistance.
The Rockport Story
Rockport is a locally owned independent and assisted living facility in beautiful Rocky River, Ohio. Rockport has a history within the community and offers its residents a unique building in a great city. We offer a variety of private and spacious apartment suites to choose from, and an array of services to give our residents a comfortable, carefree lifestyle.
Since 1995, we have been assisting seniors with excellent personal care and service. We do the cooking, cleaning and laundry, while you take up a new hobby or participate in one of our many clubs or special interest groups. Rockport's long-term staff is dedicated and happy to offer you the services you need as you age in place. The happiness and well-being of our residents is not only our goal, it's our mission.
I have raised my family in Rocky River and am very attached to this community, which is why I was happy to add another independent and assisted living community to care for families and their loved ones. Rockport makes independent and assisted living easy and affordable. Our family takes good care of the staff and treats them like family, and in return, they care for our residents like family. Come down and visit us. We will always give you a warm welcome.
To promote our residents' independence in a safe, secure, home-like community. A community where new friendships create hope. Where a veteran staff takes pride in providing personal care services when needed. Together, we create a spirit of well-being.
Our staff is an extension of our ownership-local, involved and caring. Many of our team members have been with us since the beginning, and now some of their own family members even work here. Family is very important at Rockport.
Many corporate-owned retirement facilities experience a turnover rate of 65% or higher with their care-giving staff within the first year of employment. Not at Rockport. You will see the same friendly and familiar faces every day. Rockport is proud to offer a veteran, caring and professional staff who focus on your needs. It's their job, and it's one they enjoy doing.
