Residential living to improve

CMHS transforming independent and assisted living facilities

This article is the conclusion of a two-part series on Coryell Memorial Healthcare System expansion and renovation project. Part one appeared in the Saturday, June 2 edition of the The Gatesville Messenger.

While the renovation and expansion happening on the north side and south side campuses of the Coryell Memorial Healthcare System is busily being completed, the west side campus is also experiencing a transformation. This residential campus provides a continuum of care ranging from The Oaks for independent living, to The Welcome for assisted living, to The Meadows for long-term care.

The CMHS residential care program first began in 1986 when the Welcome Program was inaugurated with three patient rooms being redecorated in a home-like motif for persons seeking private pay personal care. In 1996, The Oaks independent living facility began the construction of six apartments and by 1999, further construction introduced 16 new apartments (eight one-bedroom apartments, four two bedroom and two-bath apartments and four studio apartments), plus a dining area and other amenities.
