This week we are so excited to introduce our partner in making the dreams of our new and improved community expansion come to life – Brasfield and Gorrie!
We chose to work with Brasfield and Gorrie on this project because they have built a reputation of “unwavering quality and integrity” and here at Kirkwood, we appreciate that. Everyone who knows them, knows their work will always be strong and timely. We are very thankful to be working with them on the updates and additions to our campus. Some of these include the Overlook Cafe, the Treetop Pub, and our rebranded Riverside Dining Room. They will also be modernizing our lobby area, renovating various administrative offices, and helping us to create a brand new wellness center and multipurpose activities room!
If you haven’t seen the construction tape at the end our our parking lot, you might not know that Brasfield and Gorrie has already broken ground on our brand new building that will be for our Assisted Living and Memory Care Assisted Living residents! This space will include large studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom apartments for both levels of care. Assisted Living will have Juliette balconies for direct access to fresh air, multiple gathering spaces, a large welcoming dining room, a beautiful terrace with views of nature and a courtyard including gas firepits and lounging areas. Memory Care Assisted Living will have their own secure courtyard located in the center of the building where residents will be able to freely walk outside and throughout the community.
Lastly, Skilled Nursing and short-term rehabilitation will be renovated to have a new direct entrance and parking for visitors. Sixteen private rooms will be moved to the second floor, complete with a new therapy gym. Which, then, will allow us to convert 32 semi-private beds into 32 private rooms. The renovation will also include new dining and activities spaces for both levels of Skilled Nursing and updates throughout.
We are grateful to have begun this journey towards the future of Kirkwood with such outstanding companies, like Brasfield and Gorrie and we can’t wait to see the finished work!
