Comfort Care Homes will open its new care center for people with advanced stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia next week.
Inspectors are doing the final check-offs on the $2.6 million Founders Crest facility.
The facility is located on two acres southeast of the intersection of 21st and Woodlawn, behind Brittany Center. The property is off Bramblewood Street.
Founders Crest can accommodate up to 28 residents. The building has 26 long-term care units and two short-stay suites.
The facility will open with 19 of those spots already spoken for. Most of those will be residents who are moved from some of Comfort Care’s older facilities.
Announced last June, Founders Crest is the first ground-up facility that Comfort Care has opened.
