Heritage at Irene Woods, a new Ecumen-managed senior living community near Memphis, Tenn., hosted its official dedication ceremony January 10, 2014, welcoming about 100 local officials, business owners and health care professionals for tours and lunch.
The dedication festivities included a program featuring Warren Rose, CEO of Edward Rose & Sons, the owner and developer of Heritage at Irene Woods and Julie Murray, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and New Business Development at Ecumen, along with local dignitaries.
Mark Luttrell, Mayor of Shelby County, sent a proclamation officially welcoming Heritage at Irene Woods to the community.
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.
Heritage at Irene Woods provides 140 private apartments to people age 65+ all available on a monthly rental basis with no entrance fees. The community, totaling more than 165,000 square feet, has multiple common areas for the use of residents including three dining venues, a chapel, theater, pub, library, yoga/wellness center, salon and day spa, children’s area, Arboretum sun room, outdoor patios and garden areas. A team of licensed care staff are on-site 24-hours a day, for residents who need or require assistance.
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 currently 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.
