Resort-Style Assisted Living & Memory Care Facility to be Built in Cape Girardeau.
Cape Girardeau, MO – October 12, 2021
Newbridge Properties held a groundbreaking ceremony on October 7, celebrating the start of construction of its newest senior living facility in Cape Girardeau, Missouri – Newbridge Retirement Community.
The new 75,000 square foot facility, located at 1205 S. Mount Auburn Rd. in Cape Girardeau, at the intersection of S. Mount Auburn and Kingshighway, will provide assisted living and memory care for seniors.
The resort-style retirement community will total 82 apartments with 46 Assisted Living apartments, 12 second-person accommodations for couples, and 36 Special Care units that are private apartments designed for Memory Care to care for residents for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
The community will focus on lifestyle events and person-centered care. An assisted living enhanced life enrichment program will provide activities to help maintain independence and individualized interest and hobbies, offering many choices for an active lifestyle. The facility’s common spaces include a library, café bistro, salon and spa, pub, fitness room, art and gardening areas, outdoor courtyards and walking trails, therapy room, and personal transportation services.
The Memory Care portion of the building will include two households designed to empower each resident to function at his or her highest and best potential. Both households will engage residents in meaningful activities adapted to their cognitive and physical ability level. Each household will have its own private dining, kitchen, nursing station, and common living spaces.
Vessel Architecture is the architect for the new state-of-the-art facility; IMPACT Strategies is the construction manager. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2022.
