KANSAS CITY, MO: Benton House Senior Living will be celebrating its two year anniversary in the Kansas City area with a special announcement--an expansion. ShyAnne Ebarb, Regional Director of Community Relations for Benton House says; “We’re so grateful for the response the community has given our three Benton House locations. To have grown so quickly is really quite an achievement. And now to be able to add additional apartments to each building and serve even more seniors-we are all just really proud and excited.”

Benton House currently serves over 60 residents in each of their communities located in Lee’s Summit, Prairie Village and the Shoal Creek area of Kansas City Northland. These communities feature senior living apartments and exclusive neighborhoods dedicated to serving seniors experiencing memory loss. The additions will add a completely new memory care neighborhood to each existing building.

Adds Ebarb, “The new memory care neighborhoods will be very similar to the existing ones in terms of size and amenities. The neighborhoods will be connected by a hallway but each will have its own living, dining and common areas and large enclosed courtyards. We really think the community within a community concept works well and want to keep that feel.”

It is expected that each addition will cost $1,800,000 to construct and will open mid to late 2014. These communities are a joint venture between Hunt Midwest and Principal Senior Living Group. The builder is Meyers Brothers Construction. As a result of the expansion, and in addition to the jobs created by the construction, each community hopes to add 15-20 new jobs to their existing staff of 40.

Reservations for the new apartments are now being accepted. To learn more or to schedule a personal visit to Benton House call one of the listed locations or visit
