Motivational speaker Jim Rohn once said, “One person caring about another represents life’s greatest value.” And that is especially true when we extend ourselves to care for older adults, offering them love and support in the twilight of their lives.
Family, community and quality of life are things we highly value at Henderson, Inc., and we’re using those values as inspiration for our latest project as general contractor for an expansion at Williamsburg Landing.
The retirement community recently announced plans for a $41 million project that will add 100,000 square feet to Woodhaven, its on-site health care complex. Major elements of the expanded facility will include a 24-unit Memory Care household, a 37-unit expansion of residential Assistant Living and a 15-bed specialized short term skilled rehabilitation unit. Plans also call for a licensed Adult Day program, which will be the only one of its kind in the area.
Henderson, Inc. will work alongside construction manager Matthews Development Company LLC, civil engineer firm AES, Inc., structural engineering firm The Structures Group Inc. and architectural group Reese, Lower, Patrick and Scott, which specializes in senior living design and worked on the original Woodhaven facility.
With the senior population in greater Williamsburg expected to rise from 16 percent to 21 percent by 2020, executives with the senior living community felt it was time to grow capacity and services to better serve an ever growing senior citizen population.
The expansion is the largest investment in Williamsburg Landing’s 30-year history.
“With the significant expected growth of the senior population in Williamsburg, this project maintains the Landing’s leadership position in innovative programs and services for seniors, and positions the community to address the changing needs of residents,” said Executive Vice President Ben Puckett.
These new facilities will offer much needed support for patients needing assisted living services or memory care. The Adult Day program will provide a lower cost alternative for family members caring for elderly relatives at home, at an estimated price of $40 to $70 a day.
“The project is designed to allow Williamsburg Landing to continue its long tradition of excellence in health care services to its residents and the community,” said Jim Golden, Chair of Williamsburg Landing’s Board of Directors.
We are so thrilled to play a part in continuing Williamsburg Landing’s tradition of excellent service and care to those who need it the most.
