A new assisted living facility will soon call Greenville home.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held Thursday for Country Place Senior Living of Greenville.

Construction on the facility started in August. The project is expected to be completed in the spring. Officials say it should be finished around May.

“We’ve created a place to fulfill the senior living needs of the community, whether that’s peace of mind for loved ones, physical well-being or life enrichment for a sense of purpose and hope,” said Ted Good, president of CP Homes. “The senior care industry is a vital part of Alabama, and through a partnership with Greenville we hope to contribute to the state’s economic growth.”

All 24 suites at the facility will be equipped with a fully accessible private bathroom, large sitting and sleeping areas and a hospitality kitchen. In addition to the private living suites, the 16,000 sq. ft. building will include a large dining area, indoor and outdoor social areas, exercise facility, library, commercial kitchen and other amenities.

“Country Place Senior Living offers a truly exceptional standard of assisted living, specially designed to meet the lifestyle and healthcare needs of seniors in Butler County and the surrounding areas,” said Jack West, founder of Country Place Senior Living. “Each resident will be able to select the supportive health care services they desire.”

Personal and healthcare services will be offered by the staff, which will be on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The staff will include an administrator, a full-time nurse, dietary consultant, food service coordinator, full-time life enrichment coordinator and numerous certified nurse aids.

Services to be provided at the residence will include three home cooked meals a day, housekeeping and personal laundry services, help with dressing, bathing and grooming, and assistance with personal medications.

The facility, which will be located at 1035 Fort Dale Rd. near the Comfort Inn, is expected to create 15-20 jobs.

The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for 4 p.m.
