Officials of the Good Samaritan Society–Water Valley Senior Living Resort in Windsor announced Friday a 56,000-square-foot expansion to the senior community.

The expansion will add two buildings to the campus, 805 Compassion Drive: a two-story, 40-bed assisted-living building and a one-story, 16-bed memory-care building. The planned expansion is expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2019, according to a Good Samaritan news release.

The memory-care building will use a "family-home model," which includes private rooms centered around a shared community and dining room area, an enclosed courtyard, resident programming areas and staff support spaces.

The assisted-living building will have common areas for residents on both floors to provide activity programming and support services. The common areas include a chapel/multi-purpose activity room, dining room, fitness area and a salon.

"The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society continues to seek opportunities where we can expand our outreach to a vulnerable population needing care, comfort and security," John McElderry, the Good Samaritan Society-Water Valley administrator, said in a news release. "As part of the northern Colorado community, we have helped share God's love with many seniors and their families who were facing difficult choices and transitions."

The community is entering its 10th year serving the northern Colorado area.
