KANSAS CITY, MO–Tutera Senior Living & Health Care announces the completion of its $55 million, 18.4 acre Mission Chateau Senior Living Community in Prairie Village, Kansas, comprised of 22 villas and 201 luxury apartment homes. The memory care and assisted living residential options are now open – adding to the independent living residences, which opened in summer 2018 – to offer a comprehensive continuum of care to meet the diverse lifestyle and health care needs of seniors.
Unlike other senior communities that require a buy-in or large upfront payment, the high-end Mission Chateau at 4100 West 85th Street in Prairie Village, Kansas, is a rental-based community for discerning seniors who want more choice and flexibility.
Mission Chateau comprises 214,800-square-feet of 201 luxury apartment homes: 121 for independent living and 40 each for memory care and assisted living. Each one-bedroom, one-bedroom-plus-den and two-bedroom apartment home features high-end appliances, coffered ceilings and large windows that open to a lush, park-like setting.
“We worked hard to make sure Mission Chateau feels like a stylish, yet ultra-comfortable home,” said Peaches Cunningham, executive director of Mission Chateau. “Our 18 gated acres are beautifully landscaped, reminiscent of a spectacular country club, with unparalleled amenities.”
Residents also have priority access to Tutera Senior Living’s full complement of post-acute health care services including home health onsite, as well as rehabilitation and skilled nursing at one of Tutera’s nearby facilities, customized to meet diverse health care needs.
Mission Chateau exemplifies the highest standards in senior living and wellness design. In addition to the state-of-the-art fitness center, indoor heated pool and jacuzzi, Tutera has teamed with 20/20 Fitness in Prairie Village to offer residents a full spectrum of mind-body wellness services. “This new partnership allows us to offer residents dynamic programming to meet their diverse needs and interests, with onsite, individual training and group classes — from yoga and meditation to strength and balance training – even courses to improve their golf swing,” said Joe Tutera, chief executive officer of Tutera Senior Living & Health Care.
Mission Chateau’s many other amenities include:
- Multiple restaurant-style dining options, including a bistro, formal dining room, and a pub with private dining and outdoor dining spaces
- Healthy menu options made to order by in-house chefs
- Resort-style heated indoor wellness swimming pool and Jacuzzi
- High-end salon and day spa
