Americare officially broke ground on a new independent and assisted living community, La Bonne Maison, on Monday. Located at the corner of Plaza Drive and Salcedo, just east of Missouri Delta Medical Center, once open, Americare plans to convert Westridge Place to an Arbors memory care assisted living community. Both the new assisted living and Arbors conversion will be complete by the fall of 2013. Present for the groundbreaking were, from left: Julianna Ford, interior design consultant for Americare; Christie Montgomery; Will Montgomery, owner of Willco Construction; Richard Montgomery, chairman of the board of Americare; Megan Parker, administrator of Americare; and Mary Eaves, operations director of Americare.
