Our Next Chapter: Building with Love! is a $17.5 million building project designed to meet today’s challenge of the growing need for affordable, high quality assisted living services that offer personal security and supportive care with a trained and caring staff. The expansion will add a new 70,000 square foot facility with 60 new Assisted Living Apartments, a Wellness Center, and new activity, entertainment and dining centers. Included in the Wellness Center will be a warm water therapy pool as well as areas for wellness programs which promote physical, emotional and attitudinal well-being for the residents. The new activity, entertainment and dining centers will offer residents, families and friends the ability to socialize in beautiful new surroundings. Another major feature in the project will be a second access road to Saint Simeon’s from the east which will be used for commercial and emergency access.

To date, $14.7 million has been raised including a $1 million challenge grant from The J.E. and L.E. Mabee Foundation to be met by Jan. 2008 and a $100,000 challenge grant from Founders & Associates, Inc. to be met by Apr. 2, 2008.
