SpringShire creates advisory board, adds members
Monday, June 26, 2017
SpringShire’s commitment to future residents’ needs and the community has brought about the formation of a Community Advisory Board and the addition of several members.
Advisory board members are volunteering their time to help introduce SpringShire to the community and will participate in upcoming events.
Members include Charlotte-Anne Alexander, elder law attorney with Colombo Kitchin Attorneys; Homer Tyre, owner of Tyre Real Estate Company; Lynn Pischke, account executive with WNCT-TV; Emily Coffman, owner of Igoe Creative, Inc.; and Andrew Ross, Lifelong Learning Programs coordinator at East Carolina University.
“Our goal at SpringShire is to create not only a premier Life Plan Community, but also to become an active and conscientious citizen in this area. We want to be connected with the community and participate in the wonderful things happening in Greenville,” said Morgan Lamphere, vice president of marketing.
SpringShire Retirement, LLC is a not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC). A CCRC is a community that offers a continuum of living and care options for older adults. The community is being developed by Retirement Living Associates, Inc., a firm that also manages a number of other senior living communities in the Southeast including Springmoor Life Care Community in Raleigh.
The SpringShire community will consist of 150 independent-living apartments, 12 independent cottages, an 8-bed assisted living unit and a 12-bed skilled nursing unit. It will be situated on 127 acres of land located off Highway 43 near Ironwood Country Club. In addition to the homes, the community will offer a variety of services and amenities such as dining venues, a movie theater, fitness center and indoor pool, card rooms and easy access to nature trails and walkways.
The advisory board members said they were happy to be involved.
“I am excited to serve on the Community Advisory Board and work with SpringShire Retirement Community to inspire their future residents to engage in wonderful opportunities through their amenities and the Lifelong Learning Program,” Ross said.
“Eastern N.C. needs a wider array of options for older adults and SpringShire checks all the boxes: choices of housing, from totally independent living to smaller apartments to targeted care,” Alexander said. “The campus will be lovely, nestled into nature, with amenities designed to promote an active, social lifestyle and a sense of community. I am thrilled to be part of creating this wonderful opportunity in the eastern N.C. area.”
