A Secret Garden Grows at McGregorMonday, March 4, 2019
As Clevelanders need a wider range of housing options, McGregor is coming up with creative solutions and supporting that need with a wonderful addition to our campus!
Realizing the potential of longevity and designed to serve the growing population of elders in northeast Ohio, this three-story assisted living residence comprised of 90-private units is rising on McGregor’s 45-acre campus at 14900 Private Drive. Investing in our future-There is plenty of opportunity for people to enjoy all the services for which McGregor is known!
Health and wellness boils down to being active – socially, mentally, emotionally and physically. McGregor sits on a picturesque 45-acre campus with walking paths and gardens that are ideal for exercise and social engagement. It’s a natural setting for getting outdoors and being active, and we use it for recreational opportunities including a community garden, horticulture, summer concerts and even beekeeping. There is no doubt that creative endeavors enhance the quality of life. Seniors live in the best of times, given their financial and political clout. Their needs and concerns are being heard because Boomers want to live longer and also want to have more meaningful years. Cleveland, voted an Age-friendly City, is one of the best places in the Country to enjoy the experience of aging!
“Central to McGregor’s mission is the commitment to support programs that allow older adults to age in place, wherever they call “home”. “Our number one priority is to build out the capacity of services that enables affordable senior housing”, stated Rob Hilton, President & CEO. "We've long been aware of the appalling shortage of senior housing, particularly for the low-income people we serve. We've spent seven years working together to produce this plan."
According to the Center for Community Solutions, over 300,000 older adults living in Cuyahoga County, represent 24% of the total population. Projections indicate that by the year 2030, older adults over age 65 will outnumber children and teens under age 20, representing a "New Majority”.
