For the Active Retirees
by Craig Murphy - Of the Keizertimes
Yes, another retirement community is being planned for Keizer.
But developers of the Village at Keizer Ridge assisted living and memory care facility believe their building will fill a niche.
Greg Roderick, president and CEO of Portland-based Frontier Management, gave the Keizertimes an update on plans last week along with Dale Burghardt of Burghardt Investments. Roderick noted Frontier has 55 such facilities around the country, with 27 in Oregon, including Cedar Village and Redwood Heights in Salem.
The 126-unit, 100,000 square foot facility will be located at 1165 McGee Court NE in Keizer, next to the existing Emerald Pointe Senior Living Community. There will be 104 assisted living units, plus 22 memory care units. Burghardt said Village at Keizer Ridge is expected to open in the spring of 2016, though the Frontier website lists a late 2015 opening.
Roderick feels Village at Keizer Ridge will offer unique experiences.
“We are raising the bar and setting a new standard for memory care in the Keizer-Salem marketplace,” Roderick said. “We’ve got a bistro on the main level. In the morning we will have a coffee bar, with a wine bar in the afternoon and evening. There will be a family room feel with a fireplace. There will be a beautiful patio for 20 to 25 people outside the lounge. We will have a nice fire pit out there.
“We’ve realized today’s senior citizens and their adult children are looking for a more engaging lifestyle,” he added. “People have changed. We are adapting this to today’s seniors and today’s adult children. We are really removing stigmas and daunting fear of looking at assisted living sites for loved ones.”Click Here to View the Full Article
