Its incredibly exciting to be restoring an iconic landmark like the Alexander Inn.

Senior Solutions Management Group (SSMG), a leading provider of superior quality senior service and care across the Southeast, today announced its breaking ground on constructing its newest facility in Oakridge, Tennessee. SSMG is transforming the historic Alexander Inn into an advanced assisted living and memory care community.

The Alexander Inn, originally known as The Guest House, was built in 1943 by the US War Department to house official visitors during the top-secret Manhattan Project. Numerous dignitaries stayed in the guest quarters, including Enrico Fermi, Robert Oppenheimer and General Leslie Groves as they planned and ultimately built the atomic bomb. The government sold the Alexander Inn in 1953, which served as a private hotel for the next three decades until it ceased operations in the mid-1990s.

“Its incredibly exciting to be restoring an iconic landmark like the Alexander Inn,” says Todd Barker, President of Senior Solutions Management Group. “Its not everyday that we get to develop a project like this. We’re looking forward to unveiling facility later this year and hope that it brings new excitement to a community its served for so many years.”

SSMG is converting the unique property into a state-of-the-art, LEED certified, assisted living facility that will serve seniors in Oak Ridge and Anderson County. The 60-unit building is scheduled to be complete by late 2013. It will feature a special wing dedicated to seniors suffering from memory loss issues and will include a physical therapy center onsite. The senior living community will provide upscale amenities such as; dedicated and trained around the clock caregivers, a licensed nursing staff, delicious home-style cuisine, scheduled transportation, full time activities director to provide and more. To ensure that seniors can afford the care they deserve, SSMG will offer its exceptional assistant living services at a reasonable all-inclusive monthly rate.

SSMG will function as the manager for the property, which is owned and operated by Family Pride Corporation, the oldest and largest provider of senior living solutions in the Knoxville area. Once completed, the project will provide one of the most unique and upscale, yet affordable, senior care options in the region.

“Family Pride Corporation is extremely excited to be partnering with Senior Solutions Management Group to restore the Alexander Inn and make it available for senior living use,” says Rick Dover, Family Pride Group. “This remarkable building holds great significance for Oak Ridge and we look forward to opening our doors to the community.”
