Additions To Meadowlark Pointe Are Coming Soon
Meadowlark Pointe, the assisted living located on the northwest side of Cozad, plans to make an addition. The Cozad Community Hospital Foundation hosted an informational meeting Wednesday evening for the leasers in the community to hear about the upcoming plans for the addition to Meadowlark Pointe.
26 rooms will be added onto the east end of Meadowlark Pointe. Of those 26 rooms, 12 will be assisted and 14 will be memory care. Along with adding rooms, there will be a new Chapel and an enlarged commercial kitchen. This addition will not only create more rooms, but will also create more jobs for our community as we continue to grow. Meadowlark Pointe is in high demand and we continue to provide excellent care to our current residents. Lyle Davis, Administrator of the Cozad Community Health System, explained how important it is for our community to step up and be a part of this expansion and how this will benefit our community.
There is a growing need for memory care in not only Cozad, but in the area. Numbers for memory care needs are expected to double by 2050. “This addition to Meadowlark Pointe will allow Cozad to meet the needs of the population,” Davis stated.
