We are extremely excited to be announcing this project to breathe new life into the old Oakwood Elementary School.

Senior Solutions Management Group (SSMG), a leading provider of superior quality senior care across the Southeast, today announced a new state-of-the-art project to convert the old Oakwood Elementary School in North Knoxville, Tennessee into a new, top-of-the-line assisted living and memory care community.

SSMG has already initiated construction to transform the historic 50,000 square foot building, originally constructed in 1914 and will complete renovations by Fall 2013. Once finished, SSMG will unveil a state-of-the-art facility, constructed to LEED certification, which will offer unparalleled assisted living services to seniors living in the Oakwood, Old North and Lincoln Park neighborhoods near Knoxville.

The new senior community will consist of 62 units offering a residential feel with one to two bedroom apartments. The Oakwood will feature a special wing dedicated to seniors suffering from memory loss issues, and will include a physical therapy wellness center onsite. The facility will provide upscale amenities such as; dedicated and trained around the clock caregivers, a licensed nursing staff, delicious home-style cuisine, scheduled transportation and more. Oakwood will have a full time activities director on staff to provide more independent resident clientele with social events and recreational activities. At the core of SSMG’s philosophy is the notion that seniors should receive the care they need without the fear of financial impact, so the Oakwood will offer all its assisted living services at a reasonable all-inclusive monthly rate.

“We are extremely excited to be announcing this project to breathe new life into the old Oakwood Elementary School,” says Todd Barker, President of Senior Solutions Management Group. “It’s an extremely spacious, beautiful historic building. Once renovated it will provide North Knoxville seniors with an upscale environment, premium amenities and exceptional personalized care for an affordable price.”

SSMG will serve as the manager for The Oakwood, which is owned and operated by Family Pride Corporation, the oldest and largest provider of senior living solutions in the Knoxville area. When the assisted living facility opens its doors in the Fall, The Oakwood will undoubtedly raise the bar for affordable senior living in the Knoxville area.
