Design briefs, April 2017
- Edgemere has started work on the second phase of construction of its $36 million expansion and renovation project in Dallas. It is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2018. The second phase of the multimillion-dollar project will focus on building an additional 35 apartment homes in The Plaza Health Services Neighborhood at Edgemere. There will be eight new assisted living apartment homes, 12 memory support suites and 15 skilled nursing private suites.
- The Pearl at Five Forks recently opened its doors in Simpsonville, SC. The new community, which offers 48 secured apartments for memory care, has an open design concept to allow seniors to live as independently as possible in a safe environment. Phoenix Senior Living partnered with Memory Care Centers of America to complete the project.
- Silverado has acquired a three-story, 80-bed skilled nursing facility in Houston that also will provide memory care and rehabilitation. Silverado Hermann Park Memory Care and Rehabilitation will serve approximately 50 people with memory impairments. In addition, its skilled nursing rehabilitation will serve patients with and without memory impairment, and Silverado Hospice will provide general inpatient hospice care.
