Abbey Delray Holds Groundbreaking For Expansion, Renovation Project


Staff report

Abbey Delray broke ground on a $36 million expansion and redevelopment project last month that will add a new assisted living and memory support building, wellness center and renovated common areas.

The expansion will add 48 assisted living apartments and 30 memory support suites to Abbey Delray, which currently features more than 350 residential living apartment homes and villas.

Construction will include a modern design layout, a new dining venue with expanded meal options and enlarged meeting spaces for more educational and wellness events.

“This project will further enhance our ability to fulfill our promise of providing exceptional care in a warm and welcoming environment,” said Mark Trepanier, executive director of Abbey Delray. “The redevelopment will benefit our current residents, as well as future seniors who will call the community home.”

The changes will enhance the idea that seniors can control their futures through Life Care, which provides residents worry-free living.

“A primary reason residents select Abbey Delray is because of our commitment to Life Care and the peace of mind we are able to provide,” said Kevin Knopf, regional director of operations for Lifespace Communities, Inc., Abbey Delray’s parent company. “Lifespace is committed to reinvesting in our communities and continuing to lead the field of senior living.”
