The Autumn Leaves in West Houston to be built by the LaSalle Group at an estimated cost of 11.2 million dollars and spread over 26,000 sq. ft. is an assisted living memory care community. Here, people living with dementia and Alzheimer’s will be taken care of just as if they were in their own homes.
Over the last two years, the LaSalle Group has introduced the people of West Houston to eight such homes. The undertaking is the fruition of a three-way partnership between Community Trust Bank, Silverado Interests and the LaSalle Group.
The Director of Finance of the LaSalle Group, Jason Dupont expressed excitement in catering to the memory care requirements prevalent in the area, besides offering job opportunities to more than 200 locals. He added that the venture would involve about 155 construction personnel and 45 persons who would provide the assisted living memory care service.
The Chief Financial Officer of the LaSalle Group, Brenda Brantley echoed similar thoughts and expressed pride to be part of the West Houston community and was confident that the proficiency of the staff would provide considerate care in home-like surroundings.
The LaSalle Group are prominent design and building contractors as well as providers of assisted living and memory care. All employees go through meticulous training sessions to increase their comprehension of healthcare and to provide appropriate humane care.
The colony in West Houston is anticipated to commence operations in the Q1 of 2013.
