GREER, SC - Thrive Senior Living and Pulliam Investment Company announced that they have broken ground on an innovative new assisted living and memory care community in Greer, SC. The community will consist of 89 private resident suites, including a dedicated and separate neighborhood for residents with memory support needs. Construction is slated to be complete in July of 2015.
The community will showcase a unique and innovative design, driven by a best-in-class design team consisting of THW Architects (Atlanta, GA) and Studio Six 5 Interiors (Austin, TX). Construction is being overseen by a joint venture between Culpepper Construction Company and Compass Contracting.
Cutting edge technology will be integrated with the purpose of sustaining resident quality of life, accurately tracking the health of residents, and boosting resident’s connectivity to their family and friends, as well as their physicians. Thrive Senior Living has partnered with LG to develop a revolutionary “Smart Senior Living” platform which allows the well-being of each resident to be carefully monitored in a responsible but un-intrusive way, and allows transparency and accountability to healthcare providers and family members. As a part of the LG platform, medications are actively tracked in concert with the physicians and pharmacies, reducing delivery errors and medication conflicts.
The Village at Greer will provide a socially vibrant atmosphere, offering amenities such as an activity center, beauty salon, spa, coffee shop, and a fitness center. Unique technology will also allow residents to enjoy ‘Streetview Tours’ of anywhere on earth, play interactive trivia, and participate in various activities intended to both entertain and sharpen mental acuity. Also, Thrive is piloting multiple technologies that will allow residents and their families to easily capture the story of their lives in a format that can be passed down to future generations.
The Village at Greer will fill a unique need in the local market. “The Greer market hasn’t seen a new assisted living and memory care competitor of this kind before, and hasn’t seen any new entrants in the market in over 10 years” says Jeramy Ragsdale, CEO of Thrive Senior Living. “We are excited to join this rapidly growing community and feel there is an extremely strong demand for a truly new and innovative approach to caring for seniors.” John Easterling, President of Pulliam Investment Company, says that, “As a local resident, I have seen the population grow in size and age, and the need for a new approach to senior care is overwhelming.”
The Village at Greer is a joint venture between Pulliam Investment Company and Thrive Senior Living, and construction financing has been provided by Certus Bank and Contemporary Healthcare Capital.
