Village at Anthony Boulevard to host open house Oct. 17

Lutheran Life Villages has completed the final phase of major renovations to The Village at Anthony Boulevard retirement community in southeast Fort Wayne. To celebrate the event, the facility at 6701 S. Anthony Blvd. will host an open house Oct. 17th from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be served, and the event is open to the public.

The $2.3 million project, named Project Connect & Renew, began in the spring of 2018 and includes updates to the Memorial Chapel as well as renovations to select patient care areas of the campus, modernization of campus systems and infrastructure and additional renovations to multi-use areas of residential living. The project is the latest in a capital improvements program that includes a multi-million dollar investment in The Village at Pine Valley, an 84-bed, licensed skilled nursing and rehabilitation center opened in 2012, and the $1 million 2015 renovation of The Village at Kendallville.

“We are extremely pleased with the results of phase I of Project Connect and Renew. This includes investment in the rehabilitation suites and spa, known as Oak Terrace, which provides a wonderful experience for our patients working hard to get back to their home. In addition, the renovated memory support neighborhood, Magnolia Lane, offers spacious private rooms, outdoor space and wonderful gathering spaces for residents and families alike.” Alex Kiefer, president and CEO of Lutheran Life Villages, said in a statement. “These extensive improvements reflect our mission to deliver high-quality, faith-based living and services to seniors in northeast Indiana.”

The Village at Anthony Boulevard opened in 1962 and is a living community for adults 55 and older offering assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing care and rehabilitation. The community serves over 350 residents and employs over 270 full- and part-time staff.
