Residents at one Victoria elder living facility will soon find themselves in updated digs.
Sodalis Elder Living, formerly known as Alzcare, plans to build a new Victoria community, according to a Sodalis news release.
The company breaks ground Friday on the incoming addition, going in at 4409 N. John Stockbauer Drive. Sodalis already has a community at the John Stockbauer location.
Sodalis' up-and-coming building will house residents currently living in the company's Nursery Road location, according to the release. Staff members at the Nursery location will also transition to the new site.
Lisa Joy, a regional sales specialist with Sodalis, said the change is a chance to offer residents a community built specifically to their needs. The Nursery Road facility, she said, is a converted ranch-style home.
The incoming building will include 16 beds - two more than the Nursery Road location - for residents with moderate to severe memory loss due to dementia or related diagnoses, according to the release. Both private and semiprivate rooms are available, and home-cooked meals are included.
Joy said openings will be available at the new facility, which should be complete in about five months.
Although she did not have information regarding project costs, a permit filed with the city of Victoria valued the 4,407-square-foot building at $600,000.
Joy said Sodalis works to be a resource for the entire community not only its residents. Support groups, partnerships with the Alzheimer's Association and other services join the mix.
