OMAHA, Neb., — Immanuel, the Midwest leader in retirement living and senior living communities, announces big changes to Pacific Springs, a signature campus in west Omaha. With construction already underway, this retirement community will see new common spaces, enhanced services and a new assisted living and memory support neighborhood, opening in the fall of 2021.
“We’re thrilled and excited to begin construction at Pacific Springs, an Immanuel Signature Community,” said Eric Gurley, Immanuel president & CEO. “Our not-for-profit mission means we’re continuously reinvesting in our communities. The needs of residents come first, that’s the Immanuel difference.”
Pacific Springs, an Immanuel Signature Community located adjacent to the Pacific Springs Golf Club at 805 S 173rd Plaza, offers premiere independent and assisted retirement living apartments to area seniors. The renovations will connect Pacific Springs Village’s assisted living neighborhood to its independent living neighborhood while adding comprehensive memory support to the campus. Renovation plans also include enhanced common spaces including a new Thrive by Immanuel fitness center and wellness studio, onsite restaurant and lounge featuring a golf simulator, outdoor areas and walking paths, and a chapel beautifully adorned with a locally designed stained glass window donated by residents.
The new memory care apartments join Immanuel’s existing memory care communities with the latest in compassionate programming supporting those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. The memory support neighborhood includes plans for an outdoor courtyard, complete with covered porch and areas for art and music activities.
Immanuel’s newest life enrichment programming is leading the way for these and other changes. Thrive by Immanuel, focuses on wellness of the whole person – mind, body and spirit.
