New Senior Living Facility Coming to St. Augustine
Opening in late summer, St. Augustine will soon welcome a distinct option for senior living – Silver Creek at St. Augustine, offering assisted living, memory care and short-term respite care. Currently in the final stages of construction, Silver Creek will feature 72 assisted living apartments and 48 memory care apartments ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom apartments. The community is owned and developed by Montgomery Land Company based in Jacksonville.
Located off Highway 207 on 21 acres and surrounded by a natural, wooded preserve, Silver Creek’s Spanish architectural structure features state-of- the-art building design technology to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and includes the latest fire-suppression technology. The interior spaces include wide corridors, vaulted ceilings and beautiful finishes throughout, as well as an interior rotunda surrounding a grand piano located in the community lobby. A double-sided stone fireplace is also in the lobby.
Silver Creek’s community spaces are designed to support and empower continued resident growth spiritually, physically, intellectually and socially. The community’s philosophy shifts away from the traditional, outdated medical care model toward a modern, hospitality-based model that promotes increased independence, fosters continued engagement in life, and maximizes individual potential.
Silver Creek also features a library with computer center, solarium sun room, Flagler Private Dining, Banyanwood Bistro and physical therapy room furnished with equipment specifically designed for seniors, beauty salon and spa, a multi-media center featuring a movie theater, courtyard with covered seating, community education center for residents and staff, as well as a wellness clinic for onsite doctor visits. Residents will also have their choice of planned social events/outings, educational programs and activities available every day.
Silver Creek’s Welcome Center is open and located onsite at 165 Silver Lane in St. Augustine.<< News
