It is exciting to see the Maryville Long-Term Care building taking shape with stone and siding work in progress. There will be a new long-term care household and two memory-support households in Maryville and one long-term care household in Kingsport. In addition, the health care centers at both locations are part of the campus enhancement campaigns.
In the household model, long-term care communities are divided into spaces for small groups of residents who enjoy a private room, but also share such common spaces as a kitchen and dining and living rooms.
The household model is constructed to resemble home and provide residents with as many opportunities as possible to direct their daily lives. Each household is staffed and residents, family members and staff collectively make daily decisions. Residents decide when they get up and how they spend their time during the day, including when and what they eat and when they go to bed. Our team has been working hard towards this day, and we’re so excited to provide this new model for East Tennessee seniors!
Asbury Place is an equal housing opportunity community.
