NEW ASSISTED LIVING AND MEMORY CARE COMMUNITY COMING TO JOHNSTON
West Des Moines, IA (October 21, 2014) – Hubbell Realty Company, along with Senior Housing Management of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, broke ground Monday afternoon on a 64-unit assisted living and memory care community in Johnston, Iowa. Edencrest at Green Meadows will be located at 6750 Corporate Drive, Johnston, Iowa. The community, an $11.9 million investment, is scheduled to open in summer 2015.
“The city of Johnston presents a natural location for us to expand the Edencrest brand and develop a new assisted living community,” said Rick Tollakson, Hubbell Realty Company President and CEO. “After much success partnering with Senior Housing Management on Edencrest at Riverwoods, we are excited to bring this senior housing option to another metro community and serve a larger number of central Iowans.”
Edencrest at Green Meadows will be a certified assisted living community through the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals and will provide amazing lifestyle amenities including private apartments as well as spacious common areas including a central dining room with menu options and a salad bar, exercise room, beauty salon, spa room, country store and private gathering areas for family and friends.
“We hear from Johnston residents all the time that they are looking for assisted living options in Johnston. They have been here for years and they want to stay in Johnston,” said Johnston Mayor Paula Dierenfeld. “Edencrest at Green Meadows is a great fit for the community and will serve our residents well.”
The community also will offer a specialized, secured environment for persons with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. The secured memory care is designed to meet the needs of individuals who require supervision and/or assistance with activities of daily living through daily programming.
A unique combination of housing, support services, personal assistance and health care is delivered in a residential environment that is staffed with trained professionals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The community will also have a full time Registered Nurse, Community Manager, Life Enrichment Coordinator and Culinary Coordinator.
Edencrest at Green Meadows is being built by Hubbell Construction Services and managed by Senior Housing Management based in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Senior Housing Management provides management for 18 other communities in Iowa, including Edencrest at Riverwoods, the first project in which Hubbell Realty Company partnered with Senior Housing Management.
