Wallick Senior Living Commemorates Veterans Day

Yesterday was the yearly holiday honoring America’s veterans for their patriotism and willingness to sacrifice and serve. Several senior living communities at Wallick celebrated this day and their own veterans.

The Ashford on Broad invited their veterans for a time full of dessert, champagne, and sharing their unforgettable stories with each other. The staff honored the veterans with a red rose and flag, gift bags with handmade ornaments that contained soldiers and flags, frames made for each veteran with their pictures to create an American Heroes wall to honor each veteran calling AOB their home.

An unveiling of a mural honoring the 15 veterans living at The Ashford at Sturbridge was how the community commemorated Veteran’s Day this year. The mural will be the focal point of the community, with scenes representing each branch of service and incorporating photographs of each veteran. These 14 men and one woman represent the Navy, Army, Airforce, and Marine Corps with service in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam. Teacher, Lexi Schmitt, created the Veterans Day mural. The American Legion of Hilliard led the community in the Pledge of Allegiance, and each veteran was presented with a certificate and flag pin honoring their service.

NBC4, a Columbus, OH television station, joined the Veteran’s Day festivities at The Ashford at Sturbridge.

These were two of many exciting and humbling events held throughout the country yesterday.

Wallick Closes on Tenth Senior Living Community

Last Friday marked the closing of The Ashford of Beavercreek, a soon-to-be constructed senior living community in Beavercreek, Ohio.

This new development will have 22 private and shared memory care suites with 32 beds, and 82 studio, and one- and two-bedroom assisted and independent living suites for up to 120 residents.

The 104-unit community will be a single building with a three-story assisted and independent living wing, and a single-story memory care wing. A shared center area will link the two, featuring seating areas, activity rooms, a fitness center, beauty salon and barbershop, art studio, formal and private dining rooms, and a grab-and-go bistro that will have a dual purpose as a pub for happy hours and informal resident socializing.

When fully occupied, The Ashford of Beavercreek will create up to 51 new, full-time jobs in Beavercreek that include nurses, personal care assistants, maintenance techs, housekeepers, cooks, and marketing and administrative staff.

Construction will begin in October 2021 and is expected to be completed by the spring of 2023.
