Miramar, FL (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
South Florida’s newest concept in retirement living, Casa Sant’Angelo, has received Provisional Certificate of Authority (PCOA) approval from the State of Florida. This approval is an important step in the ongoing development of a retirement community that will offer a catered lifestyle designed to enrich individual health, wellness and spiritual development.
America’s aging population is experiencing unprecedented growth but is ill prepared to meet the housing needs of seniors, according to a recent report by Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies and the AARP Foundation.
The U.S. News &World Report has published statistics from the Census Bureau which documents how there are more than 40.3 million people age 65 and older in the United States, up 5.3% from 2000.
As the first Archdiocesan retirement community in South Florida, Casa Sant’Angelo will provide an exceptional living experience for independent seniors in Miramar, including personalized services, active lifestyle offerings and lifelong learning. There will be 75 independent living apartments, 13 assisted living units and 24 memory support units. Located on 5.25 acres, it is scheduled to open in 2017.
“After several years of careful planning and due diligence, it is gratifying to see this project take an important step forward toward becoming a reality,” said Joe Catania, President and CEO of Catholic Health Services. “Seniors in South Florida have expressed strong support for the type of community we will be offering at Casa Sant’Angelo. We are delighted to see our mission, as well as the mission of the Archdiocese of Miami, reflected in this new retirement community that offers a worry-free living experience where residents can age in place while retaining their dignity, independence and enhance their quality of life.”
Casa Sant’Angelo is on the campus of St. John XXIII Catholic Church, just west of I-75. The spacious apartments are part of a close-knit community that includes social and spiritual activities, a swimming pool, wellness and fitness amenities and a restaurant with chef-inspired cuisine.
Designed by the C. C. Hodgson Architectural Group, Casa Sant’Angelo will be built by JWR Construction Services, a company which specializes in creating senior living communities. This is the first non-profit continuing care retirement community built in Broward County in the last decade.
Interested individuals are invited to join the “Casa Club” to receive exclusive invitations to all pre-opening events and be provided priority Founding Member status on the future Casa Sant’Angelo Resident’s Council.
