Senior living community to open in Minden

Valage Carson Valley, a new senior living community, will hold an upcoming groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of 102 apartment homes for seniors on June 20 in Minden. The project’s expected completion is fall 2024.

Valage Carson Valley is a joint venture between Greystone Housing Impact Investors LP and ISL Ventures, designed by PI Architects, and to be built by Metcalf Builders, managed by Leading Light Development and Construction Consulting, and operated by Integral Senior Living.

Valage Carson Valley will feature 56 assisted-living apartment homes and 46 memory care residences developed to support those with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other memory-impairing diseases.

The assisted-living apartment homes range from studio to one- and two-bedroom units and are crafted to integrate safety features within comfortable and functional designer-influenced spaces. With walk-in closets, large designer baths and full-size refrigerators, these apartments will have their own secure Wi-Fi networks and lighting systems that feature nighttime safety features. The spacious memory care apartments are also complete with state-of-the-art technology, including a Safely-You fall monitoring system. The community is designed for safety and security.

The building will include top-tier amenities such as an open-concept design, resort-style community spaces, including an upper-level outdoor terrace, fully fenced dog park, in-house theater and chapel, and an on-site salon and day spa.

Valage Carson Valley will provide much-needed additional housing for the growing senior community and will employ more than 60 full-time employees, including an in-house chef and culinary team, activities and wellness team and a dedicated nursing staff.

Centrally located in the heart of the Carson Valley, and within walking distance medical services including Carson Tahoe Health, the community will collaborate with nearby medical services to provide easy access to health care needs that its residents may have. With an emphasis on using local vendors and medical providers, the community looks forward to building long-lasting relationships with the area businesses and medical practices.
