Kaiser Permanente is building a new 210,000-square-foot medical office building to replace its current facility on River- side Boulevard, which will nearly double the number of provid- er offices, and include a larger pharmacy and laboratory. Sutter Roseville is undertaking a 97,000-square-foot expansion of its hospital’s emergency and intensive care units. “All of our hospi- tals are undergoing significant expansions,” Matteoli says, “and I think that’s a key component to our quality of life and meeting our residents’ needs.” Last year, the Roseville City Council approved deferring the development impact fees for two senior housing projects locat- ed near Westfield Galleria mall and The Fountains shopping center by developer, Alliance Residential Company. Broadstone Independent Living will have 201 units and the adjacent Holden Senior Living will have 96 assisted living and 25 memory care units. Construction is expected to start this spring, and similar to other planned projects in the region, these developments will include amenities like bocce courts, an outdoor courtyard, a fit- ness gym and onsite activities. At Prairie City Landing in Folsom, much of Newcum’s en- joyment comes from the long list of activities she participates in, she says, rattling off things like exercise class, happy hour, line-dancing, $5 movies at the Palladio, trips to a bowling alley, a reader’s theater performance of “The Golden Girls” she over- saw. Newcum is also part of a group of ladies who prepare fresh flower arrangements for the dining room once a week. Prairie City Landing has a gym and full-time fitness in- structor, a theater and arts studio, among other amenities. The facility also has a bistro, cafe with comfort foods and a more upscale dining room with a menu that changes weekly. Addi- tionally, the facility organizes trips to places like Apple Hill, San Francisco and Monterey. “We’re not just building a building,” says Flanigan, of Tenfold. “We’re not just delivering services. We are building a community.” About 25 percent of residents there are part of a couple, and the facility does not charge a second-person fee, which Ten- fold says represents an annual savings of about $10,000. They also allow pets. These types of welcoming policies, along with the emphasis on social activities, helps ease the transition for new residents who may be moving out of single-family homes they’ve lived in for the past 40 years — whether that be those of the silent generation who need housing today or the baby boomers who will need housing in the near future. For Newcum, she couldn’t be more pleased with her deci- sion to leave her old home behind. At Prairie City Landing, she says she has found a new family. Plus, she loves the big parties there. “Last year, we had the most amazing New Year’s Eve party,” she says, of the themed festivities. “We celebrated New Year’s Eve in Venice — at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.” n Sena Christian is the managing editor for Comstock’s.
