CROSSVILLE – Dominion Senior Living has announced the opening of its new assisted living and memory care senior living community, Dominion Senior Living of Crossville. To celebrate, there will be a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Wednesday, July 27, at the newly completed facility located at 887 Woodlawn Road.

Dominion Senior Living of Crossville is the only dedicated memory care community in the area – it’s designed for residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. However, seniors who do not need memory care, but would benefit from an assisted-living environment, are welcome as well. The 25,000-square-foot community can accommodate up to 60 residents and has a total of 40 apartments. The community plans to be a resource for families who live in the surrounding area by featuring free educational speakers and by partnering with local nonprofits to host support groups and give back both locally and internationally.

“We’re so excited to welcome our friends and neighbors in Crossville to our community and have them experience the special, compassionate environment we’ll offer,” said Dominion Senior Living of Crossville Executive Director Vickie Wilson. “Our staff has been anxiously preparing to welcome our residents and create special, close bonds that feel like family. Helping others is part of our culture, and we can’t wait to provide each resident, his or her family and our community with fun, educational and purposeful activities to enrich their lives each day.”

Dominion’s model attends to all aspects of wellness, not only for residents but staff. The community has professionally-trained nurses and caregivers available 24 hours a day. Activities that engage the mind, body and soul, such as Dominion’s own tapestry and Art from the Heart programs, will be offered on a daily basis. The community features interiors that feel like home and offer each resident three freshly-prepared home-style meals a day.

Each staff member has completed an extensive training program crafted by the Dominion Senior Living corporate office.

“Being able to offer this personalized senior care is an honor for us. We really feel as if the residents are a part of our family,” said Dominion Senior Living Vice President Josh Crisp. “So much thought and research went into this community; from senior-friendly interiors to stimulating gardens, each detail was carefully considered and created to offer the best care and experience for our residents. We know these expert memory care services are needed in this area, and we look forward to positively impacting the lives of seniors and their families in Crossville.”

The ribbon cutting will take place at 10 a.m., with an open house immediately following until noon. The public is invited. Members of the Dominion Senior Living leadership team as well as local team members, future community residents and representatives from the Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber will also be present.
