Newly renovated independent living apartments at Lawrence PMMA
Lawrence Presbyterian Manor celebrated the end of a nine-months long renovation of ten independent living apartments with a ribbon cutting and rededication ceremony on Tuesday, January 10.
The $2.1 million renovation of the apartments on the 4th and 5th floor of Sunflower Towers marked completion of the remodel of all independent living apartments at the community. Apartments on the 3rd floor were remodeled at an earlier date.
Updating the apartments is part of the community’s commitment to providing modern housing options for residents seeking senior living and services. The apartments include luxury vinyl planking, updated bathrooms and kitchens with stainless steel appliances, widened doors and hallways for improved accessibility, as well as social rooms, storage areas, and modern laundry facilities.
“We’re really excited to have everything opened up to provide a nice, updated space for seniors in the area,” said Desi Flerlage, executive director. “What we had before was quite outdated, so this is really going to encourage people who are moving from a larger living situation to make the transition much easier.”
Resident Susanne Shaw is already enjoying her new apartment.
“My mother lived her for a long time, and she had great care,” she said. “That’s why I moved when I did. I have a great two-bedroom and if I ever need it, the best healthcare in the area.”
