High-quality senior living and a focus on friendship and connections are at the core of West Knoxville’s newest community. Prime’s executive director, Teresa Ingram, reveals how independent living in Knoxville, TN, just got fun and affordable.
After working in the senior living market for over a decade, Teresa Ingram is well aware that residing in an all-inclusive community can be a stretch financially for many people. Her determination to make outstanding and budget-friendly independent living possible for every day seniors has been a driving force as she brings Prime West Knoxville to fruition.
The charming independent living community will officially open mid-2020, offering seniors the chance to take up residence in a vibrant, active community at a budget-friendly price.
“We are the value pricing,” says Teresa. “When people see they can actually afford to live here, I think they will be very happy. We are able to reach the people who thought this kind of senior living was impossible for them because some independent living communities cost up to $5000 a month.”
In contrast, monthly prices at Prime West Knoxville start at $2395 for a one-bedroom apartment with utilities and basic cable included. Residents will be treated to complimentary garden-fresh meals in the all-day dining area and can stop by the courtyard café for unlimited coffee or soft-serve ice cream. The fee also covers a vast array of activities and amenities such as fun, fitness classes, hydroponic garden, pickleball court, an 18-hole putting green, and a Bark Park for four-legged residents.
“Prime West Knoxville is an awesome opportunity for independent people to enjoy life,” adds Teresa. “Residents can visit the billiards room, play cards, have fun at the shuffleboard table, or pour a glass of wine and visit with friends. We will also have Zumba, pilates, and other great exercise classes. Prime is like a one-stop-shop because it’s all here for them. They can have socialization any hour of the day if they choose and not have to get out in the weather to go do it.”
Prime’s emphasis on friendship and things to do is a vital component for Teresa who believes everyone needs social interaction.
“The old-fashioned way — and I don’t mean that bad — is to live in your home until the day you pass,” she explains. “But that can be lonely. Seniors live longer if they have socialization. Prime West Knoxville is a great opportunity to continue their lives, grow in their lives, make friends, and mainly just enjoy their years as a senior.”
