New senior facility coming to the ArkLaMiss
A new senior adult center is coming to the ArkLaMiss. Nannette Flowers, director of 50+ Adult Ministries for First Methodist Monroe, is inviting the community to an informative session on the new 18-acre multi-generational retirement community.
The First Methodist Church of Monroe has partnered with P. Allen Smith to present an introduction to the Gardens of Somerset in Sterlington.
Flowers says this new facility is another great option to help seniors live more independently.
“Were finding, at our church, that a lot of members are having to put on a waiting list to be in Monroe city housing facilities sometimes two to three years. We’re finding some of them had to be moved out of the area because they don’t have the skilled nursing care there and just not bed available for them to be to get the type of therapy they need.”
The community center will include assisted living, a kitchen, dining center, a garden along with a nursing facility and memory care for those who have dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The presentation will be Tuesday, March 10, at 1:30 p.m. at First Methodist of Monroe on 3900 Loop Road. The event is free and open to the public.
