Company building suburban senior living facility
A new 107-room senior living facility is coming to the area.
Louisville, Kentucky-based Trilogy Health Services is building an 84,800-square-foot facility in Byron Township.
It will be on five acres of a 15-acre development on the corner of Byron Center Avenue SW and 64th Street SW. An individual address has not yet been assigned.
Trilogy said the two-story facility will contain 107 rooms, including assisted living, memory care and post-acute health care in fully furnished suites on the first floor, and second-floor independent living apartments containing kitchenettes.
The campus will have 123 total beds: 15 one-bedroom and seven studio independent living apartments; 15 private and four “private deluxe” assisted living apartments; six private and six private deluxe memory care rooms; and 46 private, two private deluxe and six “semi-private” skilled nursing rooms.
The first floor includes public and private dining rooms, common areas, gated and landscaped courtyards, a putting green, a fully equipped salon and a modern therapy gym. Meals are prepared by chefs and served in the dining room or can be delivered to residents’ rooms.
Independent residents will have access to a private fitness center, movie theater, bistro and lounge.
The new community is replacing an existing facility in Grand Rapids, The Oaks at Cascade, at 1157 Medical Park Dr. SE, which only offers post-acute health care services. The new facility’s expanded space and services will allow the company to serve more residents and cater care to changing needs.
The community will also offer exercise, social and other programs for residents. For those with memory loss, Trilogy said the center will use the latest caregiving techniques, emphasizing the importance of learning residents’ unique needs, interests and personal histories to create an environment where they feel valued and understood.
Trilogy did not disclose its investment amount or source of financing.
Construction started on the project late last year and should be finished later this year, according to Tony Basile, the Chicago-based developer of the 15 acre development — called JBB Place — who sold the parcel to Trilogy.
Trilogy plans to open the facility by the end of this year.
The company plans to hire for a variety of positions and will have more specifics closer to the projected opening date.
