ALEXANDRIA – Baptist Life Communities is on track to open its new Seasons of Alexandria retirement living complex in Alexandria in November.
The new $46 million community will have room for 183 older adults including 117 skilled nursing beds. Construction crews are building a 90,000-square-foot community on 10 acres of fenced-off land at Ky. 709 and AA Highway in Alexandria.
Alexandria’s new community will eventually replace Baptist Life’s Newport location. A slimmed-down version of Newport Baptist Convalescent Center of Newport will remain open after The Seasons of Alexandria opens. Newport Baptist Convalescent has 167 skilled nursing beds and 30 personal care apartments.
The Seasons of Alexandria will include 50 additional assisted living apartments, 16 additional memory care residences and a health and wellness center.
Construction progress remains on schedule, Baptist Life CEO Robert Long said.
“We won’t be done until November,” Long said.
Building a care facility to state specifications takes time, he said.
“We’ve got inspectors up there every day,” Long said.
Erlanger-based Baptist Life additionally operates Baptist Village in Erlanger with 80 independent living units and 100 skilled nursing beds and the 12 independent living units of Griesser Farm in Burlington.
