“It has been 5 years in the making to bring this dream to life. By renovating an old school building on church property, we are able to re-use existing property, utilize the community to help create the character of the building, offer a revenue source for the church, encourage multi-generational interaction, and most importantly, create affordable senior living.”

Peter Hynes, President, Urbitecture

We’ve talked about affordability in senior care before, so this was a genuine joy to learn about Open Arms Assisted Living. Open Arms has affordable assisted living private pay options, and also serves those who rely on Medicaid.

Peter and his team worked with St. Andrews Lutheran Church to renovate an old school. The benefits for the church, the community, the soon-to-be-residents, and the team who helped build Open Arms are enormous.

Watch this episode to hear how:

  • How intergenerational interaction is a natural and core component of Open Arms
  • How the church leaders and community participants worked together with Urbitecture to make this dream a reality
  • Why this is just the beginning of creating affordable senior care options
