Windsor Manor Assisted Living facility, in conjunction with the Nevada Chamber of Commerce and Story County Medical Center, will host a groundbreaking ceremony for the public on Wednesday, August 25th from 4-6pm. The groundbreaking ceremony will commence at 5:30pm.
The ceremony will be held at the future location of Windsor Manor on the Story Medical South Campus, 619 South G Avenue in Nevada, Iowa. The public is invited to help celebrate by attending the event and enjoying friends, light hors d’oeuvres and wine.

In September of 2009, Story County Medical Center Board of Trustees entered into a land purchase option agreement with HR Green for the future construction of an assisted living complex. This week, Story County Medical Center sold 5.6 acres of their 20-acre campus to company. Construction will begin at the end of August, and the facility will open in spring 2011.
The new assisted living facility will be 36,000 square foot and feature common areas such as a large dining room, an activity center, sun rooms, separate lounge areas for group socializing, reading and TV viewing, salon with spa, and outdoor spaces such as porches, patios, a gazebo, and courtyards with walking trails throughout the site.
The Windsor Manor facility will initially offer 40 apartments including studio, one bedroom and two bedroom options. Each apartment will have its own bathroom and kitchen or kitchenette area. Services will include three meals per day, laundry, housekeeping, cable TV, internet access, an emergency response system, 24-hour security, scheduled activities, personal care services and transportation.
The facility will also feature a secure memory care wing to accommodate individuals who have Alzheimer’s, dementia or other memory care needs. Future building expansions will include additional apartments and garages for residents with vehicles.
The facility expects to employ 25 trained professionals, including a full time nurse. The facility will be staffed 24 hours per day 7 days a week.
