New community offers services for seniors
(Front center) Residents June Anderson and Chris Dyer cut the ribbon for the opening of Fountains of Franklin senior community surrounded by about 300 guests including County Mayor Rogers Anderson, Franklin Mayor Ken Moore and Franklin Alderman Beverly Burger as well as members of the Williamson Chamber of Commerce.
The new Fountains of Franklin senior housing community welcomed about 300 guests at the ribbon cutting July 28 in celebration of the completion of Phase 1 of the facility in Franklin.
The assisted living wing opened June 6, while later phases will include a Memory Care wing and one-story cottages for independent living.
The new assisted living residence consists of 59 one and two bedroom apartments between 676 and 1140 square feet that feature kitchens with a full size refrigerator, convection microwave, dishwasher, and granite countertops. Each apartment also contains a stackable washer/dryer, along with a walk-in closet.
Screened-in porches and enclosed sunrooms round out the apartment amenities. Services include daily assistance with meals, housekeeping, laundry, and daily living tasks.
"What a beautiful new facility for our seniors located with easy access to I-65, the Cool Springs area or downtown Franklin,” noted County Mayor Rogers Anderson, who attended the event.
“Our population of seniors continues to grow with people moving into our county throughout many states and areas to be with their children and grandchildren. The Fountains of Franklin will be another quality of life measurement that will be obtained for our county, another reason to live in Williamson County."
Fountains of Franklin is owned and operated by the local-based senior housing company, GoodWorks Unlimited. The Fountains was built on property that once served as a farm, owned by longtime Williamson County family, Leo and Fannie Mae Lynch.
Upon build-out, the Fountains of Franklin will offer independent, assisted and memory care housing and services to the area’s senior adults.
