An established CCRC in Ridgeland, Mississippi is set to expand its memory care services with a loan provided by SunTrust Bank in hand. Opened in the mid-1980s, the community includes the full continuum of care from independent living and assisted living to rehabilitation therapy and skilled nursing services. However, the time had come to replace its 13-unit memory care building with a new 40-unit community.

With the expansion, the CCRC will then be able to accept male residents in need of memory care, an option not previously possible due to size and design restrictions. Construction should start this summer and is set to open next summer. The property’s owner, Wakefield Capital, obtained a $37.5 million loan from SunTrust to fund the project.
