Christian Care Communities
A much-needed skilled nursing center is set to open in February in Louisville’s West End, an area conspicuously lacking in services for seniors. Not-for-profit Christian Care Communities has invested nearly $5 million to purchase and completely renovate what is now called Christian Health Center West, in order to provide affordable, 24-hour skilled nursing care, to include physical, occupational and speech therapy, pastoral care, and other services and activities for its residents.
An adjacent adult day center will open in May 2012 and will provide personal and nursing care, senior activities and meals, all in a homelike setting. An added bonus for this underserved area is the creation of approximately 100 new jobs, which should provide a needed boost to the economic health of the neighborhood.
Founded in 1884, Louisville-based Christian Care Communities provides affordable retirement living and long-term care for older adults throughout Kentucky.
Wyatt has been honored to assist Christian Care in a number of its transactions, and to participate in Christian Care’s fundraisers, including the annual “Kentucky Derby Festival Battle of the Bounce,” held on the Great Lawn of Louisville’s waterfront each spring.
