An Excerpt from NBC Nebraska July 14, 2015:
The board also unanimously approved a permit request for a brand new senior living facility to be called Heritage of Sagewood. Heritage Communities of Omaha wants to build the $14 million dollar project just west of Highway 281 near State Street and Ebony Lane.
“We’re short of apartments for every age group: young or old,” council member Mike Paulick said. “A lot of the assisted living we have now is not income based.”
It will be the city’s first senior living community to also have memory support resources for people with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, according to Amy Birkel, director of residence services for Heritage Communities.
Marketing director Lacy Jungman said the permit would allow for the construction of a 93-unit, 2-story senior living center with the potential to add 70 more units. She said about 65 units will be for assisted living and the remaining would be for those needing memory support services.
