PROSPER, Texas — Dallas-based Tribute Senior Living will begin construction this spring on an advanced memory care and seniors living community at the corner of Preston Road and Broadway in Prosper, Texas. Upon completion in 2016, the 60,000-square-foot community will be home to 100 residents.
“There are more than 5.2 million people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States,” says Charles Hodges, a partner with Tribute. “That number is expected to grow to more than 16 million by 2050. Those are very real numbers and when you also consider the family and friends touched by this horrible disease, we are talking about hundreds of millions of people affected in one way or another.”
Sodalis Elder Living principal and Tribute Senior Living partner Mark Rushing will serve as the operating partner. The team has formally partnered with Dr. Paula Grammas, former executive director of the Garrison Institute on Aging and tenured professor of neurology at the Texas Tech University School of Medicine, to ensure that the communities utilize every environmental and care advantage in treating Alzheimer’s and dementia.
