Baptist Life Communities Announces New Development

A new, state-of-the-art senior living option is coming to Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati area. Baptist Life Communities (BLC) announced this week plans for The Seasons @ Alexandria, a $46 million project that is expected to include two phases.

Phase I would feature 48 assisted living units, 18 memory support units and 117 skilled nursing beds. A second phase would add 60 independent living apartments.

“The Seasons @ Alexandria is the next progression in quality care for seniors,” BLC President and CEO Dr. Robert H. Long said at an announcement. “At this campus, the emphasis will be on meeting seniors at the point of need and then creating an environment for ministering to the whole individual.”

Greystone is a member of the project team for The Seasons @ Alexandria, as are C.C. Hodgson and Ziegler.

LeadingAge and Greystone Announce White Paper Series

Non-profit continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) have provided seniors with integrated care for more than 100 years. They deliver the quality, safe living environment that seniors want and need, and they also provide non-profit sponsors with a financially viable business model.

Through the decades, CCRCs have evolved to match changing senior needs, preferences, wants and concerns. As the pace of change accelerates, it’s important that providers keep pace with these changes.

Greystone will address the shifting senior living landscape in a series of white papers titled “The CCRC Evolution.” This collaboration with LeadingAge will address key factors impacting CCRCs and senior living more broadly, including:

  • The lack of quality supply to meet growing demand
  • Attractive pricing strategy options
  • The potential of forward-thinking continuing care providers to serve a new wave of seniors

While the opportunities are evident, continuing care providers face challenges with increased competition, evolving governance, succession planning and access to capital. This white paper series will describe how proactive providers are overcoming these challenges on their way to seizing opportunity.

“The CCRC Evolution: Why Continuing Care?” is the first in this series of white papers. As the series regularly addresses where we stand and where the industry is going, emphasis will be placed on innovative organizations and communities, as well as the best practices leading them to success.

Look for the release of “The CCRC Evolution: Why Continuing Care?” in early 2016. Sign up to receive a copy of this white paper by using the form below.

Edgemere Breaks Ground on Expansion and Renovation Project

Senior Quality Lifestyles Corporation broke ground this month on a $36 million expansion and renovation project at its original continuing care retirement community, Edgemere, located in Dallas, Texas.

The project’s first phase will bring a 6,000-square-foot performing arts center to Edgemere’s center courtyard. This performing arts center will feature a bar and lounge, arched ceilings with exposed wooden beams, and a stage for speakers and performances. Phase I also includes renovation of two of Edgemere’s dining venues.

Phase II will add eight assisted living units, 12 memory support suites and 15 private skilled nursing rooms to Edgemere’s health center — The Plaza. This second phase will also create updated courtyard and dining spaces, as well as additional parking.

The project is scheduled for completion in early 2018. Greystone is serving as development consultant, in addition to its role as management and marketing consultant at Edgemere.
