Wesley Manor CCRC Embarks on $8.4 Million Construction, Renovation Project

Next week, Wesley Manor, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) of Methodist Homes of Alabama and Northwest Florida, will begin an extensive construction and renovation project that will bring a new model of care to the campus in Dothan, Ala.

Expected to cost $8.4 million, the renovation will add the “Household Model,” a person-centered approach to care developed by Manhattan, Kan.-based Action Pact that emphasizes independence, choice and interpersonal relationships.

The “Household Model” enables smaller groups of residents to live together in a household environment replete with common areas such as a kitchen and living room, with each resident able to enjoy private accommodations.

Meanwhile, renovation plans at Wesley Manor include the development of a dedicated short-term stay rehabilitation center, as well as update to modernize the entire campus, including existing assisted living and health care areas. The main entrance and other building exteriors will also be canvassed into a mid-century modern style.

To kick-off construction, Wesley Manor will host a groundbreaking ceremony February 12 at its campus located at 718 Honeysuckle Road in Dothan, Ala.

Birmingham, Ala.-based Golden Construction anticipates project completion in January 2017.

Expansions include the demolition of multiple existing buildings to make way for construction of new assisted living residences, independent living apartments and two skilled nursing buildings, including a dedicated short-term rehabilitation center.

Existing community areas of the campus will also be redesigned to include medical and dental offices, a fitness center, bistro, ice cream parlor and other amenities.
