SAN ANTONIO--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--PinPoint Commercial, LP and Thrive Senior Living, LLC start construction on their new property, The Legacy at Forest Ridge Assisted Living and Memory Care Facility, this week.
“We are thrilled to begin construction on this state-of-the-art facility”
The Legacy at Forest Ridge in Schertz, TX is situated just off I-35 North and Schertz Parkway, nestled in between downtown San Antonio and New Braunfels. The community will be one story, contain as many as 112 assisted living and memory care beds and 28 memory care beds, and will serve seniors in the Northeast San Antonio metro area. The innovative building design will allow it to adjust the number of memory care or assisted living units in order to better accommodate the city’s growing senior population.
“We are thrilled to begin construction on this state-of-the-art facility,” said Charles Turner, Principal with PinPoint Commercial. “After its completion in mid-2014, we will bring Texas an assisted living community unmatched by any other.”
The Legacy at Forest Ridge follows a unique “Main Street & Neighborhood” design, in which each wing of the facility will serve as a separate “neighborhood” for the residents that live there. Residents of every neighborhood have a shared common area specific to them. However, the facility will also be engineered around a central “Main Street,” showcasing amenities such as a restaurant, movie theater, store, spa, gym and sports bar. This design philosophy gives residents as much freedom and choice as possible by allowing them to gravitate toward the areas that interest them most.
The interior layout of the community encompasses the latest trends in the industry - elegant, yet still comfortable for today’s generation of seniors. The upscale décor will be accented with luxurious interior furnishings and finishes.
PinPoint and Thrive also announced a strategic partnership with LG, one of the world’s leading technology companies, to develop a suite of solutions uniquely tailored to the assisted living industry.
The Legacy at Forest Ridge “will be equipped with every technology we have ever wanted to deploy. The building infrastructure focuses on technology for creating efficiencies to assist our team and enhance resident quality of life,” said Tod Petty, President of Thrive Senior Living. “Our relationship with LG will allow us to implement the next generation of resident care. No one else is doing this in the United States.”
The community will incorporate technologies specifically designed for the residents of Legacy at Forest Ridge, including:
- Remote RFID resident location monitoring
- Wireless RFID door entry for resident security as well as staff audit and management.
- State of the art LG point of care systems for tracking resident quality of life
- Tele-medicine suites for remote monitoring by the outside medical community
- Resident computing and redundant bandwidth for video chatting with loved ones.
- Bed-weight and motion sensors
- Identity lighting to guide residents to restrooms at night
