Construction is underway for the new Inspired Living assisted living — memory care community in Rockledge.

The community — called Alura — will be located at 777 Roy Wall Blvd.

John O’Connor, superintendent of Core Construction, the Frisco, Texas company building the 135-unit assisted living/memory care and 100-unit independent living facility, said construction is on schedule to be completed by mid-March 2021. 

“The coronavirus pandemic hasn’t slowed down construction at all,” he said.

 Inspired Living is an upscale brand of senior living communities specializing in independent, assisted living and memory care services throughout the Southeast United States. The Rockledge community will be the company’s 11th facility in Florida. 

Validus Senior Living, a senior lifestyle company based in Tampa, owns and operates a continuum of senior living communities, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. Validus merges visionary practices, state-of-the-art real estate, and progressive, personalized care plans for seniors. Validus Senior Living is an affiliate of Validus Group Partners, a private investment management firm based in Tampa.

Zach Benjamin, the company’s director of marketing, said Rockledge was an ideal site for its newest community.

“Our resort-style community in Rockledge is designed to provide comfortable living and enjoyment every day,” he said. “We chose the Rockledge area as it seemed not only to be a beautiful spot but as our commitment to identify and create maximum value for the seniors living in underserved middle markets.”

According to the company’s website, independent living is a senior living lifestyle option designed for active seniors who are comfortable navigating their community and their living space on their own. Independent living apartments often are more like a traditional apartment home, with features such as full-sized kitchens, a washer and dryer, and other in-home amenities requiring a high level of autonomy.

Benjamin said when considering a transition into a senior living community, it’s important to carefully consider which lifestyle option is appropriate for you or your loved one.

“If a person has been known to fall or has a recent history of unanticipated health care needs or emergencies, assisted living may be the best option,” he said. “However, if they are medically stable and interested in taking part in social opportunities, being involved in a community, and taking part in organized outings, independent living may be the right choice.”

Inspired Living communities offer all-day, restaurant-style dining in its elegant dining rooms, as well as a casual place to grab a bite to eat. Menus feature local flavors, regional favorites and resident submissions made from scratch whenever possible.
