This week our Langton Place team escorted guests to the newly opened Langton Shores Transitional Care Suites, a redevelopment of Langton Place care center.
“Guests are checking in to a brand new, specially designed, technologically advanced, stylish campus that will serve our community for decades and give our guests the best possible outcomes for recovery,” said Alana Hohertz, Campus Administrator. “They will be awestruck by how beautiful it is. That will be paired with the skill and kindness of the PHS staff to help them feel restored,” she said.
Located at 1900 West County Road D in Roseville, MN, Langton Shores offers 50 short-stay transitional care suites in a setting focused on hospitality to serve those who are in transition from either home or hospital. Comprehensive therapies and services, with an array of amenities on site, will promote healing and help people regain independence after surgery, injury or illness. Elisabeth Bartlett, Admissions Nurse explains, “What we do here is help people recover and regain their strength after really tough situations so that they can go back to hopeful, prosperous lives.”
Guests moving to the new building were given a red carpet greeting by staff and volunteers. Along with family and friends, those crossing the threshold of the new building commented on how bright, open and welcoming it is. One guest, who had been at Langton Place for nearly three weeks and was nearing the completion of her therapy program, expressed how exciting it was to be part of the whole experience. As she took time to look around the new building and amenities, she commented, “I kind of regret that I only have three days left!”
Formerly named Presbyterian Homes of Roseville, the campus opened in 1985 as a long-term skilled nursing care center. Early on the community was recognized for its innovative approach to serving residents with Alzheimer’s including clinical research through an affiliation with the University of Minnesota. In 2011, the campus name was changed to Langton Place to connect the care center’s history with Langton Elementary School, the original occupant of the site. Now, the community is renamed Langton Shores to connect the 14-acre setting with its geography near Langton Lake.
The campus is being redeveloped by Senior Housing Partners, the development arm of PHS, based in Roseville, MN. The transitional care component completes Phase 1 of the redeveloped campus which began construction in December 2018. Phase 2 will break ground in early summer adding 80 senior independent living apartments, a Town Center and a fitness center that includes a pool.
