Amarillo, Texas—PinPoint Senior Living and LifeWell Senior Living recently announced the start of construction of The Legacy at Town Square in Amarillo, Texas. The concierge community will consist of 86 luxury apartments in a two-story building.
Located at 9700 Hillside Rd., the Legacy at Town Square is at less than 5 miles from I-27. The community will offer independent living, assisted living and memory care.
“Although it is not a deep market with huge unmet demand, Amarillo is a legendary Texas town with tremendous history and character. We closed on our site last year and have been waiting for a few market signals in order to start,” said Carter Perrin, chief development officer at PinPoint Senior Living, in prepared remarks.
The property will employ various programs and technologies to assist residents, including digital resident care platforms that integrate health and medical records with touchscreen devices, as well as tablet computers for residents to stay in touch with loved ones. Monitoring systems will alert staff when atypical behaviors occurs. The tech will also include customizable wireless caregiver alert systems, wireless RFID door entry systems, exercise equipment created specifically for seniors, personal activity trackers and a telemedicine platform that allows instant access to a doctor.
“We are beyond excited to officially be underway in Amarillo. The community will be introduced to something they have not yet seen before. Every element of technology we employ is designed to improve quality of life, as well as connect our residents to their loved ones,” said Dean Mattsson, COO of LifeWell Senior Living.
The project is slated for completion in late fall of 2017.
