New facility to ease seniors’ housing crunch

May 20, 2012 by  

A new-assisted living community for seniors will open in Burlington within the next ten months.

Stonebridge at Burlington is currently being constructed on Network Drive in response to the chronic shortage of independent-living housing for seniors and assisted-living lifestyles in the Burlington area. Two other similar housing complexes in the area are at full capacity.

The facility will feature 110 units with special amenities for residents such as a comprehensive spa salon, theater, library, café, and pub. Staff will be on-site and available 24 hours a day.

It will be spread out over two separate buildings; one for activities and one for residents, surrounded by barbecue areas, gardens, and areas to sit and enjoy nature.

With the anticipation of a new construction project comes the opportunity for print companies to offer their banner printing services to create “opening soon” banners or large exterior banners advertizing phone numbers for leasing or purchasing inquiries.

As with many other independent-living and assisted-living communities, the complex will be designed so that seniors can move from the independent phase to a full-care phase if required, without the need to move to another community. It is expected that seniors currently residing in the Burlington area who are ready to downsize into a smaller, more manageable home, will snap up units in Stonebridge to that they can stay in familiar territory.

Opening date is planned for late 2012 or after Christmas. Prospective resident can reserve a spot by leaving a $100 deposit with developer Northbridge Companies. Stonebridge will conduct interviews late summer to staff the new facility with nurses, cooks, dining room staff, and administrative employees.
