Canton Adds New Facility For Assisted Living Home
The Country Place Senior Living facility recently picked Canton to begin its expansion into Texas, which should eventually include 70 planned residences.
Canton is not only the first in Texas to be built by the company but also the first to have two separate assisted living residences to be built side by side, each on two-acre parcels.
Scheduled to open in January 2014, Country Place Senior Living assisted living residences will be equipped with fully accessible private bathrooms, large sitting and sleeping areas, and a hospitality kitchen. In addition to the private living suites, the 17,700-square-foot building next door to the existing Canton Oaks facility will include a large dining area, indoor and outdoor social areas, a guest suite, exercise facility, library, commercial kitchen facilities, and other amenities.
Personal and healthcare services will be offered by staff 24 hours, seven days a week. Services will include three home cooked meals daily, housekeeping and personal laundry services, a life enrichment program, help with dressing, bathing and grooming and assistance with personal medications.
Mercy Rushing, Canton EDC executive director said, “We started working with them in June 2011 and today we are so happy to see our relationship blossom into this wonderful new business for Canton and when completed they will have 48 units to offer the Canton community along with providing approx. 40 new jobs and approximately $6 million in capital investment to Canton.”
