$8M construction planned for faith-based senior living community in Hixson

Posted: Updated:
Construction is planned for a 47,000-square-foot, $8 million assisted living and memory care senior living community in Hixson.  Dominion Senior Living acquired the construction property from Abba's House and the church will be a ministry partner. 

The community will create 50 new jobs, and will be located at 2143 Northpoint Boulevard in Hixson.  The one-story community will feature comfortable, warm interiors with all the feeling of home for 84 residents to enjoy. Dominion Senior Living, based in Knoxville, plans for the community to open the first quarter of 2016.

“Our collaborative approach to senior living is what sets us apart from other communities in the area. Every detail of the community is carefully considered and designed with the help of experts to offer a safe, secure and peaceful environment. Our goal is to ensure that the residents have a true sense of purpose,” said Mark Taylor, president of Dominion Senior Living.

The community will focus on all aspects of wellness of the residents and employees. The therapy and wellness programs will be available for everyone to use. Four large courtyards will include picnic areas, games and botanical gardens. 

"We have been praying about partnering with a senior living community for many years; this is a dream come true for Abba's House to work so closely with a group that has such integrity and commitment to serving seniors and residents in our area,” said Ronnie Phillips, Jr., co-pastor at Abba's House. 

The community will also include sensory gardens designed with features to engage residents living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. The visually stimulating gardens will encourage touch and interaction with the soil and plants, with all vegetation safe for ingestion.
