Shell Point Retirement Community more than doubled the dining space at The Springs, their month-to-month private pay assisted living facility, adding an additional 1,881 square feet to the original 1,131 square foot area.
“We’re responding to our growing resident population and needs,” said Director of Assisted Living and Resident Support Services Rita Southern. “While our Any-time Dining program is popular with residents, we found that many prefer to eat together, in groups, as part of their daily social activity,” she explained. “Mealtimes with others can help foster friendships and enhance a resident’s sense of belonging and community.”
The expanded space will also serve as the primary gathering location for entertainers and social gatherings within the building and features a private dining room well-suited to family gatherings.
Bob Southern, assistant to the president for project development, said Wright Construction Group was a natural choice for this project since they supplied Construction Management Services for the conversion of the Country Inn and Suites to The Springs in 2012. “The desire was to have this addition not look like an addition, but rather to look as if it were always a part of the original building. I believe we have achieved that,” he added.
“Wright Construction’s familiarity with the building, along with their understanding of the quality Shell Point expects, makes them a great partner,” said Southern. “They also kept the project on schedule, which is important in minimizing any impact on our residents. Most importantly, they share our pride in the improvements we are bringing to the residents of The Springs.”
New to the Shell Point lifecare tradition, The Springs offers flexible assisted living services to the public on an economical month-to-month private pay basis while maintaining the high quality care for which Shell Point is known. Located at the entrance to Shell Point, The Springs is less than two miles from the Sanibel Island causeway. This location, in addition to Shell Point’s comprehensive resident activities and healthcare services, are just some of the many benefits that residents of the facility enjoy. The Springs comprehensive monthly rate, excluding personal laundry, helps residents and their families plan for the most effective use of their resources. Shell Point’s assisted living services provide the added security of access to the network of quality health care services provided by the Shell Point health care team, when and if those services are needed.
The facility’s amenities and services include a heated swimming pool, exercise facilities, transportation, dining, 24-hour healthcare staffing, and a professional activities leader who coordinates high-quality events and activities, educational and entertainment programs, and opportunities for socialization and personal growth.
