Mesquite, NV–Mission Senior Living has broken ground on Mesa Valley Estates Assisted Living and Memory Care, an $8 million, 78-unit senior living community that will serve seniors and families in the Mesquite and Moapa Valleys, Arizona Strip and southern Utah areas.
The community, located at 1328 Bertha Howe Ave., Mesquite, across from Mesa View Regional Hospital, will be constructed by MSL Construction, LLC, and is scheduled to welcome residents in fall 2019.
The one-story 61,386 square-feet community will offer 54 assisted living homes with floor plan options that include private studio, studio deluxe, one- and two-bedroom with a single bath, and two-bedroom with a double bath. The memory care neighborhood will offer 24 private studio and semi-private studio apartments.
Joining Mission Senior Living for the ceremonial groundbreaking on August 23 were more than 50 guests, including Mesquite Mayor Al Litman, local officials and residents, project partners, and Dean and Christine Hirabayashi, Mesa Valley Estates’ first official future residents.
“This is a proud day for Mission Senior Living and we’re excited to be part of this community,” said Mike Deines, vice president of finance at Mission Senior Living. “We’re here to serve and be a resource for the community’s seniors and their family members.”
Sarah Green, vice president of operations at Mission Senior Living, said prior to the groundbreaking ceremony, Mesa Valley Estates had already secured six deposits for apartments.
“What makes Mission Senior Living communities unique is our culture of caring, serving and improving lives,” said Green. “It’s genuine, and it creates a community where people can thrive and feel safe, loved, and cared for. Mesa Valley Estates is not just a building, it’s a home.”
Amenities will include a bistro and coffee nook, movie theater and concierge, barber shop and beauty salon, a wellness center and a private office for visiting physicians. In addition to spacious indoor gathering areas, the community will feature enclosed outdoor courtyards with a grilling area, pergola, and putting green, along with raised garden boxes for resident gardeners.
Services will include prepared meals served in the dining room, housekeeping and laundry, transportation, exercise programs, a full-time nurse on staff and an emergency call system. A personalized service plan will be created for residents who need assistance with daily activities, such as medication management, dressing, and bathing.
The community plans to employ approximately 45 people with 30 full-time positions and 15 part-time team members.
Project partners include Pinnacle Architects, PA, and MSL Construction, LLC.
