Covington, LA. — Richard Totorico, Executive Director of the Trace Senior Living Community, today announced the completion of an expansion and renovation of his community in Covington Louisiana. The completed project includes the addition of a specially designed 24 apartment Memory Care and Alzheimer’s neighborhood referred to as “Maison Grace” as well as the addition of 11 new Independent and Assisted Living apartments, along with enhancements to a number of common amenity spaces throughout the community. The project enhancements include an expanded and enhanced dining room area, piano lounge, coffee shop, salon and spa, enlarged gathering spaces, along with a new chapel, baking center, fitness center and theater room.

“We’re so excited to announce the completion of this major addition and enhancement at the Trace. Our team has been working for quite some time to make this project a reality and I’m so pleased to finally turn over these new spaces to our current and future residents and families to enjoy,” said Totorico. “While we’re still a very new community, we felt like we had outgrown many of our common spaces and really wanted to offer our residents more amenities such as the expanded dining space, coffee shop, chapel, piano lounge, outdoor courtyard and theater room. We also addressed a community need with a new neighborhood living space for our residents and families challenged with Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments.  Our new memory care neighborhood has indoor and outdoor space, individual apartments, and was designed to offer our residents a cozy space where they can interact with their neighbors in great common spaces and share meals in our family dining room.” Totorico went on to say, “Our goal at the Trace is to offer our residents a beautiful place to call home, but more importantly we strive to operate our community with honesty, integrity and compassion.  Our team works hard every day to provide our residents with outstanding service and value in a caring and active environment.”

Arcadia Communities, a national owner/operator of Senior Living Communities, is the owner of the Trace Senior Living Community. “We are very excited to make this investment in the Trace for our staff, our residents and their families and feel strongly the enhancements and addition we have made over these past months will add greatly to the quality of life our residents enjoy at the Trace for many years to come,” said Brian Durbin, Arcadia’s President.  “The good folks at Kent Construction have basically turned over a brand new building to us and we feel that customers looking for quality senior housing will really appreciate the warm and tasteful environment, as well as our great staff and customer friendly service and pricing plans.”
