Fremont Senior Living Breaks Ground on $6 Million Memory Care Building in Mo.
The Fremont Senior Living Campus in Springfield, Mo. is expanding with the addition of a $6 million assisted living and memory care building, bringing the total value of the campus to $14 million.
Fremont Senior Living will get 56 beds of licensed assisted living and 16 beds of memory care to join its 22 existing villas and 33 apartments.
The assisted living addition will provide personal care services, full-service, restaurant-style dining, and one-bedroom and studio apartments. On the memory care side, residents will have access to a home-like setting with innovative Alzheimer’s disease and dementia programming.
With the addition of these buildings, the community will now offer a continuum of long-term care services in one location. The project is expected to be completed by the summer of 2013.
Miller O’Reilly is the project developer, and Empire Bank is financing the construction.
“The Fremont has experienced tremendous growth over the past 12 months, which prompted Miller O’Reilly to consider adding assisted living and memory care,” said Stephanie Harris, CEO of Arrow Senior Living Management, operator of the senior living campus. “We are excited to take this next step to offer more services for Springfield’s area seniors.”
