Thrive Senior Living Announces the Ground Breaking of an Innovative New Senior Living Community on St. Simons Island, GA, to be Called Thrive at Frederica
December 9, 2015
Thrive Senior Living will be breaking ground and starting renovations on a Thrive Assisted Living & Memory Care Community at Frederica, on St. Simons Island, GA.
Thrive at Frederica will be the premier choice for senior living on St. Simons and the Golden Isles by offering a sophisticated lifestyle in an elegantly appointed building while delivering best in class care for our residents.
Atlanta-based Thrive Senior Living announced this week that it is breaking ground and starting renovations on Thrive at Frederica, an innovative new Senior Living Community on St. Simons Island, GA. Unique to this project is that it repurposes the classic Island Design and Architectural Center building, rather than demolishing it.
ive at Frederica will focus on resident engagement and connectivity in a very unique, resort-like environment. Using a blend of technology and an innovative approach to providing care when it’s needed, Thrive at Frederica will offer a distinctive experience for a new generation of seniors. Set on beautiful Frederica Road with its canopy of large live oak trees, Thrive at Frederica will deliver a new standard for senior living on St. Simons Island and surrounding areas.
While Thrive at Frederica will feature all of the amenities expected of today’s senior living communities, it also features some unexpected twists and one-of-a-kind offerings. The Wellness Center, for example, will feature advanced pneumatic fitness equipment designed for seniors, which have large touch-screen controls, and easy access for those with limited mobility.
The 92-unit community will feature a spa, salon, movie theater, full service restaurant and bar, and an outdoor courtyard with a fireplace for year-round enjoyment. Licensed as an assisted living community, Thrive at Frederica will cater to seniors ranging from those who are completely independent to those who need more care. There will be two separate and distinct neighborhoods within the community, one for Assisted Living and an adjacent Memory Care area dedicated to serving seniors with varying levels of dementia. Using specialized technology and a focus on engaging each resident at their level of cognitive ability, Thrive’s highly trained care team aims to give meaning and a high quality of life to residents and to their families.
Residents will access their apartments using an advanced RFID system, eliminating the hassle and difficulty some seniors have with traditional keys. Thrive’s proprietary wellness program also gives residents, their families, and their physicians a holistic picture of their well-being through the use of technology tools including activity trackers and in-room monitoring systems, which learn each resident’s routine and patterns and can report anomalies and trends.
Thrive Senior Living’s unique approach also uses technology to improve residents’ quality of life, by delivering care more efficiently and with more accountability. While the majority of the senior living industry still relies on paper records, Thrive communities utilize an integrated smart care platform which creates an entirely digital environment; it integrates communication, medication management, electronic health records, and resident care plans on a single device in the hands of each care team member. Physicians and pharmacists will have instant access to real time analysis of a resident’s complete health picture, creating a more holistic approach to care.
Thrive at Frederica is located on St. Simons Island GA, on Frederica Road near the intersection with Sea Island Road. “Thrive at Frederica will be the premier choice for senior living on St. Simons and the Golden Isles by offering a sophisticated lifestyle in an elegantly appointed building while delivering best in class care for our residents” says Alan Moise, Managing Partner of Thrive Development Partners. “We are thrilled to become a part of this community.”
Thrive at Frederica is a Joint Venture between Thrive Senior Living and AIG Global Real Estate. AIG Global Real Estate Investment Corp., founded in 1987, comprises a group of international companies within AIG that invests in and actively manages real estate for clients and AIG member companies throughout the world.
Construction financing has been provided by State Bank & Trust, with construction by New South Construction (Atlanta, GA). This unique community showcases the innovative design capabilities of THW Architects (Atlanta, GA).
A Welcome Center will open near the site in the fall of 2016, and the community is expected to be fully operational in the spring of 2017.
