Officials in Noblesville have broken ground on a $25 million assisted living and memory care facility. The four-story, 105,000-square-foot Heritage Woods of Noblesville will include 124 studio and one-bedroom apartments and create nearly 80 full-time and part-time jobs.
The facility is expected to open by the end of 2018. Developer Gardant Management Co. says part of it will be dedicated to caring for older adults with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. The facility will have a staff of certified nursing assistants working under the direction of a licensed nurse.
"We focus on abilities rather than limitations because we understand that as we age our hearts, hopes and desires do not," said Rod Burkett, chief executive officer of Gardant Management Co.
Heritage Woods will also feature amenities such as a large community room, private dining room, sun rooms, walking paths, a library, computer lounge and on-site general store. The memory care portion of the facility will also feature a "hobby hut" with activity areas and living room lounges.
Gardant says the facility will have an annual with payroll with benefits around $2 million.
