BRISTOL – A groundbreaking for the new KindCare Assisted Living structure was held Tuesday at the corner of North Main Street and Farmington Avenue as part of further developments coming to the Bristol downtown.
“Bristol is very happy to see KindCare beginning the true revitalization of downtown. We expect to see up to three more shovels in the ground this summer, but starting with this innovative approach to dense living is perfect,” said Bristol Mayor Jeff Caggiano. “Bristol’s seniors will be able to afford luxury living and I am hoping they and their families will be able to walk up North Main Street when this project is completed to patronize our growing downtown businesses.”
The building is slated to feature 60 apartments in a five-story building to hold around 117 residents with 14 units being reserved for residents needing specialized care due to cognitive challenges. Bristol economic development officials said the building will feature 24-hour security as well as a modern emergency alert system. Residents will be able to make use of the building’s parlor and library and common spaces will include a media room, arts and crafts room, dining area, bistro and more. Public lounges will be on every floor.
KindCare representatives tout the facility as a new model for assisted living facilities and memory care needs as a response to demands in quality and service at more affordable prices. Among the facility’s services will include memory care, enrichment and entertainment activities, medical services and building amenities.
Partnering with Charter Senior Living, KindCare’s facility is slated to open in 2023 and those interested in making use of its services should contact email@example.com or call 603-316-4426 and ask for Seth Dudley.
