Pine Haven expands

Pine Haven Christian Communities has announced that they will be increasing the size of their Covenant Home at their Giddings Avenue Campus by 29 apartments and make some campus improvements this year.

In 2011, Pine Haven created their first Covenant Home – a household specifically dedicated to serving residents with memory care needs.

This first Covenant Home included 22 resident apartments, and was quickly at capacity with a waiting list. In 2015, they expanded their services by creating 32 additional resident apartments on their new Haven Drive campus – increasing the number of residents they could care for who have dementia by 140%.

Now, Pine Haven will expand Covenant Home at their Giddings Avenue Campus to include all of the apartments in the wing directly above the existing Covenant Home location.

This additional 29 apartments will bring the total number of residents for whom they can provide memory care up to 83.

“Over the course of the past 6-8 months, we have witnessed a significant change in those seeking out assistance at Pine Haven,” said chief operating officer Steve Hendrikse.

“More and more, we are hearing of the immediate need for services by individuals who have been living at home with significant memory impairment.” This matches the projections made by government resources and organizations like the Alzheimer’s Association which predict the number of people needing memory care will increase dramatically over the next several decades.

Along with renovations to expand Covenant Home to two floors, Pine Haven will also build a brand new production kitchen on the north wing of what used to be the nursing home at the Giddings Avenue Campus. The current production kitchen will be remodeled into a pantry kitchen and a conference room. Additionally, the current activity room will be remodeled into a large dining room that will serve all the traditional assisted living residents. This new dining room will be more spacious than the current dining room, so that residents with mobility concerns will be able to move about more easily and enjoy mealtime even more. The existing dining room will become the new activity room for residents, which should encourage greater participation in events, as it will be closer to resident rooms.
