Progress being made on new senior living community

DMK Development Group and Trilogy Management Services are making headway on their new senior living community located at 2101 Boonesboro Road in Winchester.

DMK Development Group broke ground in late 2019, and anticipates construction to be complete by winter 2021.

According to Leigh Ann Barney, president and CEO of Trilogy Management Services, “It’s very exciting to watch this community take shape. In the near future, Winchester seniors and their families will be able to find exceptional assisted living and memory care services right in their backyard.

“These services will be offered by staff who care for and about every resident. We take great pride in hiring the right people and training them to support a population that is steadily growing more acute. By combining clinical excellence with compassionate care, we create communities where seniors thrive. This is why every Trilogy community is known as a place where family comes to live.”

The new community will feature 56 assisted living and 25 memory care apartments in a mixture of

studio, one- and two-bedroom suites, and amenities will be as varied as the seniors who will call the community home.

The community will boast a full-service bistro, multiple dining areas complete with an on-site chef, an activity room designed to accommodate everything from art projects to game nights, a beauty and barber salon, library and a fitness center.

Outside, seniors and their guests can enjoy beautifully-landscaped courtyards, a putting green, lush gardens, and more.

The project will represent a total community investment of $14 million and create more than 200 construction jobs, as well as 60 to 70 permanent jobs once the community is open.

“We identified a growing need in Winchester for a senior community that will provide quality, hospitality-based senior care without giving up the luxuries of home,” David Kitchen, founder and CEO of DMK Development Group, said. “The innovative design and hospitality-oriented care of our communities give aging Americans what they want today — more services, amenities and the attention they deserve. Our partnership with an award winning, best in class manager like Trilogy Management Services is an exciting collaboration towards continuing their mission to transform the senior care industry.”
