Located on a tranquil, 6.2-acre site in Bloomington, Indiana, Evergreen Village at Bloomington is a new, 115 unit affordable assisted-living community offering a full spectrum of services. Serving an emerging demographic of moderate-income, Medicaid-eligible seniors who earn less than 60% of the area’s median income (AMI), this Residential Care Facility (RCF) fills an important affordability “gap” in current market offerings.
With a broad array of amenity spaces and a mix of studio and one-bedroom homes, the four-story, 100,000 square foot project is designed to encourage independence and socialization while supporting residents’ daily needs. Programming focuses on efficient and complementary layouts that foster ease of use for both residents and staff, with common spaces and residential “neighborhoods” oriented around elevator cores on each floor to minimize walking distances. Related amenity and service areas are grouped together to facilitate resident or family gatherings while minimally impacting staff operations. With an emphasis on wellness and opportunities for engagement and mobility, amenities include co-located bistro and dining areas, an activity room and fitness facility, general store, theater, library and computer room, as well as on-site clinician and therapy facilities. Residents can also enjoy easy access to nearby shopping, restaurants, and healthcare services, as well as a bike path and the Jackson Creek Walking Trail.
