Construction of a 47,000-square-foot assisted living facility in Hanson is winding down.
The first shovel was put in the ground the end of last year and seniors are expected to move into the brand new All American Assisted Living facility this fall.
The facility, near the intersection of Route 14 and 27 in Hanson, includes 48 apartments, eight of which are designated for memory-impaired seniors.
Seth Dudley, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, says they provide several medical services including medication handling, “We take it kind of out of their hands, work through a pharmacy, and ensure that people are taking their medications – the right dose, the right time, the right day, and the right type. We often find that once people start to get their medication regime correct, cognitively folks do much better.”
Personal care staff, a registered nurse, and 24-hour security are also provided.
But Dudley says the All American Assisted Living facility will resemble a home, not a hospital.
Among the special amenities at the Hanson facility: a bistro, a theatre, and an exercise gym.
