The former site of Loudoun Country Day School again is bustling with activity as the Spring Arbor assisted living community welcomes residents to its new 70,000-square-foot facility on Fairview Street in Leesburg. Executive Director Zoie Nikov said the facility expects to have 13 residents fully moved in by the end of the week. The remaining 57 rooms are expected to fill up within the next month, she said, noting pre-sales have been strong.
The facility provides plenty of amenities for residents, including a kitchen serving three prepared meals a day in a dining room with outdoor patio space for uses during the warmer months; a library and reading area complete with computers for Internet access, where volunteers can help residents setup e-mail and social networking accounts to stay connected with family and friends; a wellness center with daily exercise activities and on-site physical rehabilitation specialists; a walking path around the grounds of the facility; and transportation around town via a van and bus service.
Spring Arbor also is the first assisted living center in the county to have a secure area for Alzheimer's patients, in 13 cottage-style apartments with one to two beds available. The facility provides entirely independent accommodations for patients with Alzheimer's and other memory-related illnesses, including a separate kitchen and dining area, activity room and outdoor patio.
As guests continue to move in over the coming days they are likely to see the final touches being placed on the facility as crews work to finish the construction of patio areas for both the standard and memory care areas, and the bus that will be used to transport residents to doctors appointments, shopping destinations and other venues around town arrives next week.
Nikov said community response to the new facility has been positive, with more than 200 people turning out for a neighborhood open house over the weekend. Spring Arbor, which is owned by HHHunt of North Carolina, worked closely with nearby homeowners in assuring the new facility would match the aesthetic design and feel of the community, Richard Williams, senior vice president of senior living for the real estate company, said.
