LaSalle plans to build memory care center
A memory care assisted living community for those living with Alzheimer's and dementia has been planned for West Houston.
The 26,000-square-foot, $11.2 million memory care assisted living community will be built by The LaSalle Group. The Autumn Leaves of West Houston community will use a family approach and will be the ninth community the group has brought to the Houston area in two years. Partnering on the new project with LaSalle is Silverado Interests and Community Trust Bank.
"We are excited to help local families by building this community in an area that desperately needs the care," said Jason Dupont, director of finance, The LaSalle Group, in a press release. "Not only will we provide a much-needed service, but we will also create 200 jobs. It makes us proud to know that 155 construction workers will touch our site and 45 people will make up our assisted living staff."
The LaSalle Group focuses on caregiving with dedication to excellence in design and construction. All staff members undergo rigorous training in health care knowledge to provide compassionate care.
"We are thrilled to become a part of West Houston," said Brenda Brantley, chief financial officer, The LaSalle Group, in the release. "We feel a true connection to the community and know that our high level of memory care expertise will allow us to provide quality care in a loving, home-like environment."
The community is expected to open in West Houston in early 2013.
