MASON CITY, Iowa- Marilyn Hasapopoulos watched Wednesday as construction crews and Country Meadow Place workers broke ground for a $3.9 million assisted living home expansion project.
Hasapopoulos said she plans on moving in when they are finished to be closer to her husband who has Alzheimers and lives in the memory care unit. The project will add around 20 apartment complexes to their 36 existing rooms. While she is excited to be closer to her husband after not living with him for two years, she also looks forward to having some independence.
“It will give people a nice place to be and their families can come visit and they’re going to be safe,” she said. “They can do a lot of things that they can’t do on their own and you can take them places.”
Country Meadow Place said the current facility has been full for about a year and they have been working on this expansion project for about three years.
They hope to have it complete by the spring of 2019.
