What a glorious day for a groundbreaking! We had the honor of having the Mayor, along with many elected officials, participate in the groundbreaking ceremony for our new Independent Living Residences. We had over 100 attendees watch Phil Golden, John Chay, Neil Meltzer from LifeBridge Health, and many of our much loved residents and coworkers do the ceremonial dig on our beautiful new Homestead building. We are “breaking new ground” with our new partnership with LifeBridge and we couldn’t be more pleased.
The residences are for full-service Independent Living. The monthly fees include a meal program, activities, scheduled transportation, housekeeping, utilities, wellness checks, etc, etc.
The residences are larger on average and of a greater variety than those available previously from Springwell for Independent Living. Most units have balconies or patios; never before available at Springwell.
The new Independent Living residences range in size from a 1 BR / 1 Bath at 600 sq ft (The Brooks) to a 2 BR / 2 Bath corner at 1,130 sq ft (The Peabody). In-between those are the 1 BR / 1.5 Bath at 740 sq ft (The Hopkins), the 1 BR & Den / 1.5 Bath (The Mencken) and the 2 BR / 2 Bath at 1,000 sq ft (The Newberry). In addition, there are many gracious common areas including the Library, Courtyard, Pub, Living Room, Dining Room and Multipurpose Classroom among others.
Opening is planned for July, 2018. Pre-leasing will begin this July.
