Assisted living facility planned

Renee Ramsey and other Mustang Creek Estates representatives were looking to expand their business, and decided do so right in Sachse.

To be more precise Ramsey, the CEO of MCE, and others decided that Sachse fit the criteria for a new affordable assisted-living facility, which the company is now building along Ranch Road.

“Our goal is to be affordable,” Ramsey said. “In general, we want to be $1,000 less a month than our competition.”

MCE’s community, which is expected to care for about 90 senior citizens when completed, is the fifth such venture the group has undertaken in the North Texas area. Currently, Ramsey noted, it has assisted living facilities in Frisco, Burleson, Allen and Keller.

They’re all similar to what’s being planned for Sachse; six buildings designed to look like single-family homes, and which will house 10-16 residents apiece. The first such house should be ready by the fall, Ramsey said.

The idea is to have a “campus of homes,” with each having its own kitchen and living room, rather that creating a large structure with a centralized dining facility, Ramsey said. Along with those amenities, plans also call for green space and walking paths, so residents can enjoy the outdoors.

“Even though (it’s residential) and affordable, our services are high quality,” Ramsey said, adding that MCE facilities rates will be privately paid by residents or their families.

Besides meals, residents also will be provided with round-the-clock service in case of an emergency, on-site medical assistance and cable television and internet service inside each home. Also, MCE will provide activity directors for residents, Ramsey said.
