Plans for Stone Ridge at Fieldhome, an independent living community, are well underway. Construction is expected to begin in spring of 2014 with an opening date in 2015.
The new community will be located on Fieldhome’s 96-acre campus on Catherine Street – on the border of Yorktown and Cortlandt. The Fieldhome, a non-profit organization, was established in 1879. Some of its services include inter-generational child care, short-term rehabilitation, long-term skilled nursing, assisted living, memory support, respite care and hospice.
Stone Ridge will offer maintenance-free apartment homes with community amenities and personal services.
"We’re excited to announce our plans for the Stone Ridge at Fieldhome independent living community," said John R. Ahearn, Chief Executive Officer of Fieldhome. "This expansion of our senior living options will create a lifestyle that caters to the desires of today’s older adults, who are looking to truly make the most of their retirement years and enjoy amenities that will add to their already full lives."
Fieldhome officials worked with the Yorktown planning board members and community leaders as they developed their plans for Stone Ridge.
Stone Ridge residents will be offered programs that include learning classes, cultural events, social activities and volunteering opportunities.
"Stone Ridge will fill a need in this area for a community that caters to seniors who are choosing this active and engaged lifestyle, but still provides the security of access to on-site rehabilitation, assisted living and skilled nursing, if they ever need it," Ahearn said. "This project is also a major financial investment for the community-at-large, and will provide job opportunities during the construction phase."
The Stone Ridge development plans include a three-level community with 102 living units (one and two-bedroom units), complete with amenities, including garage parking. The commons area will feature two restaurant-style dining venues, a fitness center, library, salon and arts studio.
The new apartments include entrance fees beginning at $399,900, with monthly fees starting at $2,695. Should a resident pass away or for any reason leave the community, a 100-percent return on investment will be paid to the individual.
