Just outside of Littleton, construction on a new building is rolling along on the future Landings of Lake Gaston, an assisted living community in the Affinity Living Group family.
To clarify what assisted living is, the spokesperson for Landings of Lake Gaston, James Harvey, said that it’s for people who need a little bit of help with day-to-day things like feeding themselves or showering, but it’s not a nursing home.
“Our residents don’t require a high level of medical oversight, but they might be a fall risk,” Harvey said. He also mentioned that it’s not independent living, either.
The more than 50-unit project will include some studios and other rooms with a shared living space.
The new senior living facility is expecting to bring about 33 full- and part-time jobs to the area.
“We are looking forward to making a positive impact on the seniors of Littleton, with the addition of a new assisted living community to the area,” said Senior Vice President of Development for Affinity Living Group Warren Boatman. “Once completed, this community will provide exceptional care services, comfortable living spaces and desirable amenities to its residents. We can’t wait to serve Littleton’s seniors and become a part of the greater community.”
The Landings of Lake Gaston doesn’t have a prospective opening date yet, but anyone interested in becoming a resident should contact Robin Waller at 828-270-2026 for more information.
