Morgantown Couple To Move Into State's First Continuing Care Retirement Community

Posted: Updated:

Officials have announced the grand opening of the new Arthur B. Hodges Center at Edgewood Summit for memory support and skilled nursing care.

Memory support and skilled nursing assistance is greatly needed throughout the state. Edgewood Summit aims to create a building unlike any other in West Virginia.

It is now the state's first and only complete Continuing Care Retirement Community.

A CCRC is a retirement community with a tiered approach to resident needs, including independent living, assisted living services, memory support, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services.

Every service residents may need is on campus but it still gives residents the feeling of independence.

A Morgantown couple will be one of the first to move in.

"Well we've always been rather independent and there's been a hard decision that we didn't want to be dependent on any of our children and so a facility like this is rather ideal; but we do have a son near by," said Charles Jenkins, Morgantown Resident.

Jenkins' wife is battling Alzheimer's and he will be able to move to Edgewood Summit with her.

Edgewood Summit's mission is to provide an attractive, caring, comfortable and affordable senior living community. For more information, visit its website or call 304-346-2323.
