Williamsburg Landing Memory Support & Adult Day Center
November 30, 2017 – Williamsburg, Virginia - The first section of Williamsburg Landing’s expansion project kicked off to a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony last night. The new Memory Support Home with its lower level Adult Day Center responds to demonstrated needs of Williamsburg Landing residents and the senior community in Greater Williamsburg for more options and services.
In addition to the Memory Support Home opening next week to 24 residents, the licensed Adult Day Center is expected to open in early 2018. The Adult Day program will be the only one of its kind in the area. Later in 2018, a 29-room expansion of residential Assisted Living and a 15-bed specialized short term skilled rehabilitation section will be opening.
Once completely finished in mid-2018, the expansion will add 100,000 square feet, almost doubling Williamsburg Landing’s existing Health & Rehabilitation Center. Projections show the expansion will add approximately 75 new full-time employees and approximately $235,000 in annual property taxes to James City County. The total project, estimated at a cost of $42 million, employed local general contractor, Henderson Inc. Civil engineering work was provided by AES Inc. and The Structures Group Inc. provided structural engineering. The design work was done by Reese, Lower, Patrick, and Scott (RLPS) Architects from Lancaster, PA.
Greg Storer, President/CEO, explained “the expansion continues a 30+ year tradition of carefully planned growth of facilities and services. With the significant expected growth of the senior population in Williamsburg, this project maintains our leadership commitment to innovative programs and services for seniors and positions the community to address the changing needs of residents.” Storer noted that growth in the needs for memory support and assisted living services are well-documented, and the new Adult Day Center “fills a true gap in services in our community, providing a lower-cost alternative to institutional care and allowing caregivers a necessary respite from daily caregiving.”
Ginnie Mclaughlin, Chair of the Board of Directors, stated that “the expansion addresses major goals in Williamsburg Landing’s Strategic Plan and was designed to allow Williamsburg Landing to continue its long tradition of excellence in health care services to its residents and the greater Williamsburg community.”
