Changes in demographics is one factor driving the Florida construction recovery, as evidenced by the groundbreaking of the new, $13.8 million senior living facility in Santa Rosa Beach. A project of Dominion Partners, the development called Somerby of Santa Rosa Beach incorporates 52 assisted living units, plus 24 memory-care apartments for residents with age-related memory problems, including dementia or Alzheimer’s. Situated at the junction of U.S. 98 and West Hewett Road, the Florida construction project is scheduled for occupation by the end of the year.
Dominion Partners is responding to the current and future demand for retirement living communities driven by the aging of Baby Boomers. The company started expanding its Somerby-branded communities in 2006. The Florida construction in Santa Rosa is the sixth Somerby facility, with Alabama locations in Mobile and Birmingham, two Georgia facilities and Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. A company spokesman says that Dominion has cultivated a strong brand presence in the industry and a growing reputation for respected care and services.
The Santa Rosa Beach facility incorporates stylish dining facilities with patio and dining room alternatives and chef-styled cuisine. A fitness room and physical therapy center keep seniors active and vigorous, along with hydrotherapy and pools for water aerobics with minimal impact or joint strain. Recreational offerings extend to a library and computer center, facilities for arts and crafts, as well as a theater, dancing and cards and other social activities. A day spa offers hair styling, manicure and pedicure stations.
The outdoor environment is an important aspect of all Dominion Partner’s properties. At Santa Rosa Beach, residents will be able to enjoy landscaped courtyards, trails for strolling and easily accessible boardwalks. The development is planned on a philosophy to extend superior quality of life to seniors at all levels of ability.
