Connect With Greystone at the 2016 LeadingAge Annual Meeting

The LeadingAge Annual Meeting and Expo is less than a month away, and non-profit providers are looking forward to this opportunity to learn, network and assess where we stand as an industry.

This year’s Annual Meeting runs from Oct. 30 to Nov. 2 in Indianapolis. As a LeadingAge Gold Partner, Greystone will be an active participant with speakers in five education sessions and an Expo booth where you can stop by to visit with us or get more information about our services.

We’ll also pose a question to our booth visitors this year: If you had a magic wand, what one thing would you change about the senior living industry? We’ll capture your responses and share them as a follow-up to our time together in Indianapolis.

Growth Continues at Masonic Homes of Kentucky

Louisville’s finest life plan community continues to grow thanks to a stellar brand reputation, strong demand and a mission that seeks to provide outstanding senior living options.

Masonic Homes of Kentucky broke ground this month on The Meadow, a 122-unit independent living community that will include an 80-seat movie theater, a 300-seat performance space, a café and other amenities.

“When we take on a project like The Meadow, we do so with our key values in mind: growth, innovation, remarkable service and passion above all,” said MHKY President and CEO Gary Marsh in an Insider Louisville story.

The Meadow is nearing 90 percent in presales, which is the same marketing success that MHKY has enjoyed with previous projects on its 82-acre Louisville campus. An upcoming bond issue is expected to finance the $44 million needed for The Meadow plus an additional $14 million for Grove Pointe, an assisted living center also planned for MHKY’s Louisville campus.

Greystone is serving as marketing and development consultant on The Meadow project. Other project team members include Reese Design Collaborative, Paul Mattingly/Congleton-Hacker Constructors and AG Architecture.
