Steve Massey, Buckner vice president for development, said the initial fundraising emphasis will focus on the Green House project. “The existing Green House homes have proven to be a great model for long-term care and these two new homes will add care for 24 more residents.”
The proposed two new assisted living/memory care homes will provide 30 additional units of care, while the renovation of the high-rise will become the centerpiece of the senior living community, he said.
“The renovation and expansion of the existing high-rise into an independent living community and community center will transform the campus,” Massey said. “Plans include a Texas-style renovation of the exterior and 80 independent living units, and a community center with wellness components, and amenities such as a dining room, library, bistro and computer learning area.”
Since 1951, Baptist Retirement Community has operated in San Angelo as a not-for-profit senior living community providing a full continuum of services for elders. It affiliated with the Buckner Retirement Services family of communities in 2010.
