Covington Springs bringing new approach to senior care

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Covington Springs is celebrating a new beginning in the Summit City. Leaders of the innovative senior care home will commemorate a new partnership with Majestic Residences with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 7210 Covington Rd.

Opened in January 2021, Covington Springs offers the cozy feel of home, providing a family-style environment and individualized care plans with full access to doctors, therapists, and hospice providers. Residents can enjoy meals prepared by an in-house chef, a full-service hair salon, housekeeping and laundry, transportation services, and more—all in a recently renovated home with a 4-to-1 resident-to-caregiver ratio.

Covington Springs is locally owned and operated: Robert and Paul Ueber serve as co-owners and Tracy Ekete is the facility’s executive director.

“Looking at traditional options of care, we felt there must be a better alternative for families,” Ekete said. “This new concept provides much better, more individualized care in the assisted living environment.”

“We want to care for people as individuals and help them live their best lives,” Robert Ueber added.

Company leaders hope to grow into additional homes in the Fort Wayne area, making the individualized care environment available to more people.

“We’re very excited to bring this new concept to Fort Wayne and can’t wait for families to see the advantages it presents for their loved ones,” Paul Ueber said.

Majestic Residences currently partners with nine senior care homes in Arizona, California, Texas, and Indiana.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony is open to the public. Following the official festivities, attendees are invited to tour the facility, enjoy refreshments, and meet the Covington Springs team.
