An early November opening is planned for the Antonine Sisters’ new $9 million assisted living and memory care center that will complement their 23-year-old adult day care facility.
B&B Construction of Youngstown is serving as general contractor for Antonine Village, construction of which is nearing completion at 2675 N. Lipkey Road. K. Anthony Hayek of MS Consultants of Youngstown is the architect.
Built around a secure courtyard, the campus will include 50 apartments, including 21 for adults with memory impairment and 29 for assisted living.
“This is an important extension of our mission to serve the elderly in Ohio,” said Sister Marie Madeleine Iskandar, local superior of the Antonine Sisters. “We are responding to needs that have been voiced over the years by families and friends of our day-care clients. We are very pleased with the support we have received to develop this facility in our quiet, pastoral environment.”
The Antonine Sisters have operated the adult day care center at the North Lipkey Road site since 1991 and also serve at the nearby National Shrine of Our Lady of Lebanon. The new Antonine Village will provide 24-hour nursing care, three prepared meals a day, housekeeping and laundry services, social activities and other services for assisted living and memory care residents. Religious service and pastoral care will be available as well.
“As with our day care center, our service at Antonine Village will be based on Christian principles,” Sister Madeleine said. “That will include providing compassionate care for older and disabled adults while promoting their independence and dignity.”
