Idaho’s newest continuing care retirement community is now open. Comments from one of the first residents of The Terraces of Boise say it all:

From Susie Nystrom: “After the movers left, I closed the door to my house and entered the combination for the new owners. I said ‘goodbye house’ and ‘hello to my new adventure.’ I’m not looking back; I’m only looking forward.”

Two couples and two individuals moved into The Terraces on Monday, July 27 — the senior living community’s first day of operation. These first few residents spent their initial day at The Terraces by settling into their apartments and cottages, dining on a patio that overlooks the mountains, and breaking in the main dining room.

Sponsored by American Baptist Homes of the West, The Terraces at Boise is the first life care community in its namesake city. Construction began in late 2013, and it now includes 161 independent living apartments, 40 assisted living apartments, 24 memory care suites and 48 skilled nursing beds. Greystone served as development consultant on the project.
