American House Coconut Point Groundbreaking Ceremony
On April 29, 2015, the REDICO and American House Senior Living Communities team hosted a groundbreaking ceremony to symbolize the official start of construction on American House Coconut Point, the second community located in the Southwest Florida region.
According to Dale Watchowski, president and CEO of REDICO and American House Senior Living Communities, “Put simply, we like it here and we have established a platform that will allow us to effectively serve our senior living communities throughout the state of Florida.”
American House Coconut Point will be a 194-unit independent living, assisted living and memory care community located on the border of Estero and Bonita Springs, Florida. The community will include 54 independent living, 76 assisted living and 64 memory care units, ranging in size from 327 to 879 sq. ft for studio, one-bedroom, one-bedroom/den and two-bedroom/two bath apartments.
The community will offer three levels of care:
Independent Living: Offering a comprehensive array of services and programs, independent living residents will enjoy restaurant-style dining in a beautifully appointed dining room. Other services include all utilities, high-speed internet (telephone is not included), weekly housekeeping services, scheduled and group transportation services, life enrichment director, spa and salon, gourmet coffee bar, library, game room, heated pool and covered parking.
Assisted Living: Assisted living residents will receive three (3) full meals a day plus snacks, daily maid service, morning and evening care, medication management program, showering assistance, escorts (if necessary), on-site therapy and will enjoy all amenities offered to independent living residents.
Memory Care: Memory Care apartments will serve residents with Alzheimer’s, Dementia, or those requiring one-on-one assistance. This area will have more staffing/aids and will provide all meals plus snacks, a calendar of activities geared for cognitive development and the same level of care services as provided in assisted living. The memory care community is a secured space, providing safety and security to residents who may wander.
Some of the on-site activities, included in monthly fees, will include fitness classes, water aerobics, yoga, internet lessons, book clubs, current events groups, Wii activities, discussion groups, guest speakers, movies, art classes, various entertainers and several clubs which will reflect residents’ interests. Off-site activities will be available and will include trips to museums, movies, theatre, concerts and other points of interest in Southwest Florida.
“This community will enable seniors to declare their independence living free from the worries, responsibilities and demands of home ownership and opening new doors of relaxation, socializing, activity and health,” said Rob Gillette, COO of American House Senior Living Communities.
