Heritage at Irene Woods, a new Ecumen-managed senior living community near Memphis, Tenn., hosted a festive holiday gathering of about 150 guests at its grand opening to the public on Saturday, December 14.
The open house included a visit from Santa Claus, horse-drawn carriage rides and a performance by the Houston High School Chorus dressed in Victorian costumes. The event also included a “parade of homes” apartment tour conducted by residents, along with a pasta bar lunch and drawings for prizes.
Heritage at Irene Woods recently opened with independent living, assisted living and memory care units. This is Ecumen’s first managed community in Tennessee and with partner Edward Rose & Sons, headquartered in Michigan. In the summer of 2014, Ecumen will begin managing another Edward Rose community in Clinton Township, Mich.
The 150-acre Heritage campus, between Germantown and Collierville, will become a multi-generational neighborhood over the next five years that not only has a broad spectrum of senior living services, but also an adjacent multi-family apartment development sharing the amenities. The campus includes a three-story independent and assisted living building and a one-level memory care community with connected outdoor gardens and views overlooking Irene Woods. The entire community totals over 165,000 square feet and offer 140 units of senior living apartments, all available on a monthly rental basis with no entrance fees.
