Parents and Friends, Inc. has broken ground on a new senior residential care facility in Fort Bragg. Residents will move into the new site in 2023.
People now tend to outlive their family homes and caregivers, so a new residential care facility in Fort Bragg is the logical and necessary next step to creating supportive housing that allows individuals to age in place in their community.
The new senior care home is scheduled to open in 2023 and is the result of an ongoing collaboration between Parents and Friends, Inc. and the City of Fort Bragg. The city received a Community Development Block Grant to construct a public-serving facility for low-income seniors requiring specialized care. Parents and Friends currently operates one specialized care home in Fort Bragg and will also operate the new facility when it is complete.
“We began this project 12 years ago to fill a need for senior housing and to expand housing in general for our community. It is finally coming to fruition during a time when this need is greater than ever to benefit the health and welfare of our maturing community,” said Rick Moon, CEO of Parents and Friends, Inc. “Parents and Friends has a long and successful history of taking care of our vulnerable populations and this new facility will help even more people.”
Adams Commercial General Contracting (www.acgcinc.com) is the prime construction contractor for the project, working with several local subcontractors to complete the work under the direction of K Boodjeh Architects (www.kboodjeh.com ).
