(LINTON) - Autumn Trace of Greene County will break ground on a new senior living community on Lone Tree Road in Linton this summer.

The new living community will be located across from the Greene County General Hospital. In addition to hospital services, Autumn Trace will be right next to two fully operational family medicine clinics, Greene County Health Linton and Lone Tree.

The new facility is planned to feature 44 residential suites, and a full range of amenities.

According to a press release, the facility will have on-site assistance from caring, and certified professionals will allow residents to live as independently as they desire. Autumn Trace will be a premier assisted living facility, offering an affordable, comfortable home that has been designed for fewer residents and smaller, more open common areas. The facility will offer fireplaces, dens, screened-in porches, and easy access to health care providers when they are needed.

Greene County General Hospital CEO Brenda Reetz expressed her excitement for Autumn Trace to build a facility near the hospital.

"It will operate independently from the hospital, but its location right across from our campus makes it an ideal place for seniors to enjoy as much independence as possible with quick access to high-quality health care," Reetz says.

Jim Gillen is the owner of Autumn Trace, and says they work with every resident to make sure they feel at home and to provide the best level of care possible.

"Some residents are happy to receive our daily check-in and remain independent, while others benefit from a personal service plan that supports the assistance they need. Autumn Trace will provide a community where seniors can live a vibrant and independent lifestyle knowing assistance in comfort and care is available if needed," Gillen said.

According to the Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics, life expectancy in the United States has reached a record high. Gillen says with more Americans living well into their 80's, there is an ever-growing need for high-quality assisted living for seniors across the country.
