Locally owned developer says Spring Hill facility will be “flagship.”
Traditions Senior Living, a Franklin-based company, broke ground on a new assisted living and memory care facility, Traditions of Spring Hill, earlier this week alongside members of the Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce.
The 64,000-square-foot building will be located on the east side of Miles Johnson Parkway, north of Duplex Road and southeast of Main Street. City planners approved the site plan for the facility in March, and construction is expected to conclude in 2017.
“Traditions of Spring Hill will be our flagship facility,” said development partner Jim Cross. “We are locally owned and operated, invested in this community, and looking forward to serving Spring Hill.”
It is planned to offer housing and care services for seniors who wish to remain active but need assistance with daily tasks, according to a news release.
The month-to-month lease includes three meals each day, housekeeping and laundry services, social events and transportation to local outings and appointments, plus 24-hour care and medication management.
The facility is licensed for 79 residents, 63 of whom will be in assisted living while the remaining 16 will be in the memory care community.
The Memory Care community is for residents who suffer from Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This is a highly structured, secure environment, created to promote independence, socialization and quality of life. All residents living in the memory care community will receive the same services as assisted living, plus a structured program specifically designed to help those who suffer from memory impairment.
“We are dedicated to our mission of providing the best care to Traditions of Spring Hill residents, treating them with the utmost dignity and respect,” said Wes Bartlett, CEO. “We feel strongly that residents of Traditions of Spring Hill will lead longer, healthier, happier and more fulfilled lives through our nurturing atmosphere with nutritious meals, social and physical activities, spiritual programs, and thought-provoking engagement.”
“The Spring Hill community has been enormously inviting to us. We have many friends there already who are looking forward to our collective success. We look forward to being a trusted resource for senior issues, as well as a positive contributor to the area,” Bartlett said.
Residences are available on a month-to-month lease with no buy-in fees. For more information about Traditions of Spring Hill, call Madeline Cross, management support specialist, at 615-591-8231.
