Oaks Senior Living announced that The Oaks at Pooler Assisted Living and Memory Care had a ground-breaking ceremony Sept. 22 for a new senior living facility at 125 Southern Junction Blvd., just off of Interstate 95.
The two-story community will be home to nearly 100 seniors and will create more than 65 jobs. The property will feature 61 assisted-living apartments and 29 memory -care apartments. The 5-acre site is expected to be complete in late 2016.
The center will offer amenities such as a media room, chapel, physical/occupational/speech therapy, dental and podiatry services, beauty salon/barber shop, Wi-Fi, concierge, housekeeping, laundry service and transportation to shopping and banking.
“The Oaks strives to operate communities for seniors that are not just fee for service models, but home environments that create lifestyles for the members that live there,” said CEO Alex Salabarria.
“This will be the first community of its kind in Pooler, which is why we’re so excited to open the doors and begin serving the needs of the community.”
