Last month, community leaders and project participants celebrated the ground breaking of a new Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Assisted Living Community in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Autumn Leaves of Tulsa, developed by Dallas-based The LaSalle Group, will have 38 units and accommodate approximately 46 residents. The project is the LaSalle Group’s fourth entry in the regional area and it is expected to open in fall of 2011.
“We are constantly reviewing new markets for our specialized stand-alone memory care residences,” said Mitchell Warren, President of The LaSalle Group. “Our partners and investors recognize the pent-up need for our dedicated services that cater to this specific population and based on our in-depth market research results, we found Tulsa to be a great market for our services.”
The LaSalle Group also celebrated its 20th year in operation in December and Autumn Leaves of Tulsa will be the 16th property developed by LaSalle over the past decade. The company has nine Autumn Leaves communities operating in the Dallas/Fort Worth market, three in the greater Chicago area, and one property currently operating in Houston.
“Our growth and expansion through the years has been a result of our dedication to developing quality, family-centered residences and also is attributed to the loyalty of our investors, who believe in the importance of the company’s mission to provide uniquely-specialized care for those struggling with Alzheimer’s,” said Mitchell Warren. “We look forward to a strong year in 2011 and continued growth for many years to come.”
