Indianapolis–In response to Indiana’s growing senior population, Robin Run Village, a continuing care retirement community at 5354 West 62nd St. in Indianapolis, recently completed an $11 million construction project that adds space and services.
The top floor of the new 3-story building is dedicated to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias, offering 25 apartments in a secured setting, along with Brookdale’s Clare Bridge program of care, which is based on individual interests and also includes a spa and a rooftop terrace with pergola.
The facility’s first and second floors comprise 43 assisted living apartments and numerous amenities, including a library, activity rooms, bistro/pub area, lounge and private dining rooms. With completion of the project, Robin Run Village can now accommodate about 700 residents on its 86-acre campus.
As a continuing care retirement community, Robin Run Village had already offered assisted living and dementia care, as well as independent living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation.
“This expansion of our assisted living and Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and dementia care program gives us more capacity to meet needs as they change and evolve,” David Pruett, Robin Run Village executive director, said in prepared remarks.
By 2030, the senior population in Indiana is expected to comprise 20 percent of the state’s population, significantly higher than the 13 percent in 2010, according to the Indiana Business Research Center at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. The Alzheimer’s Association estimates that the number of Hoosiers with Alzheimer’s disease will rise by 18 percent between 2015 and 2025.
