Meridian Senior Living to hold open house Saturday for Atrium at Liberty Park

By KATIE EGAN ( , Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The public is invited to an open house Saturday to see what Meridian Senior Living's newest senior community is all about.

Atrium at Liberty Park is currently under construction near the intersection of Pine Island Road and Northeast 24th Avenue in Cape Coral. It's slated to open in late summer.

Atrium at Liberty Park will be the first Southwest Florida community for Meridian, which has more than 70 communities in the U.S., and 10 in Florida.

Regional director of marketing and sales, Nancy Clanton, hopes to raise awareness about the new senior living community and promote Meridian's April 9 event, "What is Dementia," an educational seminar on Alzheimer's disease.

Since Atrium at Liberty Park is still under construction, those interested in learning more about the new community can visit the site next door to the upcoming senior living center at Uptown at Liberty Park Apartment's clubhouse.

To RSVP to the 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. open house, call 239-800-9787 or visit

Director of sales Tami Miller will be on-site to provide more information about Atrium and the services it will provide. Guests will also get to see the layout of the building on a floor plan.

"It's more like an unveiling," Clanton said.

Atrium at Liberty Park features 130 supportive independent living, assisted living and memory care residences, totaling over 110,000 square feet. There will be three large landscaped courtyards and bright amenity spaces to underscore the community's focus on active living. There will also be daily engaging and social activities, and a dining experience with multiple dining options and venues.

Atrium will offer room styles from studios to one-bedroom homes with two baths, a den and companion suite.

When you first walk into Atrium, Miller said there will be a see-through fireplace in the lobby. Some luxuries also include a movie theater, arts and crafts room and entertainment and educational classes like tai chi and yoga.

Clanton said there will also be 24-hour on-site nursing care.

"Individuals can live more independently," she said.

Residents can get care if needed for the short- or the long-term.

The fact that it's a new building also means residents can shelter in place in the event of an emergency, like a hurricane.

"It's built for safety," Clanton said. In addition to a backup generator, there will also be high-impact windows and doors.

"We're dedicated to what we call 'The WOW! Experience,' which means we strive every day to provide residents with a truly exceptional community where they thrive, make friends and love life," said Meridian Senior Living regional director of operations Stacy McCanless. "We look forward to proudly showing what Atrium at Liberty Park has to offer."

Some other luxury perks include a spa with a therapeutic whirlpool tub, fitness center, creative art studio, theater, library, salon and barbershop.

Restaurant-style meals will be prepared by an executive chef and there will be happy hours, dances, barbecues and a vast array of other social events geared toward a social, active, confident lifestyle.

"We like to provide programming and outings tailored to them (residents) so programs can change as demographics change or we can add to it," Clanton said about the different types of social events offered when the community opens its doors this summer.

"It depends on the resident," she said. "Programming is personalized to the residents who are there."

Residents will be encouraged to embrace their independence. However, around-the-clock nursing care and on-site physical therapy and rehab are available if residents require those services.

"Atrium at Liberty Park won't be a place where you just stay in your room," McCanless said. "Our robust array of options gives you plenty of reasons to keep moving and keep doing."

Meridian's exclusive Montessori Moments in Time memory care program helps to improve the quality of life of those with Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias, while offering support to families.

"We are excited to have our Welcome Center open and construction almost completed," said Chief Investment Officer Dan Castleberry. "We've spent a significant amount of time carefully crafting an environment for seniors, thoughtfully designed to exceed expectations for lifestyle and care. Atrium at Liberty Park will bring a much-needed service to seniors in Cape Coral and Southwest Florida."
