WAVERLY, Ohio – National Church Residences celebrates the completion of renovations to 70 homes at Bristol Village in Waverly, Ohio. The project was completed over the last 15 months at the organization’s flagship senior living community, which offers independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care. The beautifully renovated independent living two-bedroom patio homes have been updated and enhanced for rental to adults age 55 and over.
Capaldo Construction removed all finishes to a bare drywall and applied new finishes, including flooring, paint, appliances, cabinetry, fixtures and some heating and cooling system updates. Kitchens include a glass-top range with oven, frost-free refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher and garbage disposal. Each home also features a washer and dryer.
“Our recent $2.9 million renovation at Bristol Village is part of National Church Residences on-going commitment to the diverse needs of seniors to enable them to remain home for life,” said Doug Himes, vice president of senior living at National Church Residences. “The life-lease model remains the core of Bristol Village and our focus. However, this senior rental option supports unmet needs of many seniors.”
Opening in 1961 as National Church Residences first senior living community and extensively renovated and expanded over time, Bristol Village has long been a destination for retirees from across Ohio and beyond. Its 133-acre campus features tree-lined streets, walking paths and private parks as well as the 65,000 square foot Glenn Activity Center. Comprehensive health services also are available on campus. Home maintenance, mowing, lawncare and snow removal all are managed for residents.
“It’s nice to get up and hear the mowers running, and you’re not on them,” said Ronald Parker. Still an avid gardener, Parker noted, “There’s a gardener’s shed here with all the equipment and everything you would possibly need, so it’s very convenient – as a matter of fact, more convenient than it was when I was on the farm.”
If one were to ask Dr. Catherine Farinet about what she likes best about being a resident of Bristol Village, she would say it’s the independence and liberty to do what she loves. “We’re able to do what we want and when we want, and there’s no maintenance,” shared Farinet. “We can sleep in or leave for the weekend without worry— it’s total freedom.”
Executive Director of Bristol Village Homes, Amy Hawk said residents often talk about the benefits of having a close-knit community. “I’ve been told time and time again by our residents that their only regret is that they didn’t move in sooner,” said Hawk.
Private individualized tours are available by appointment. Bristol Village currently is offering a $500 move-in credit to new residents. To learn more, call 888-711-8518 or take a virtual tour online at: tourourcommunity.com/nat-bv/. Bristol Village is located at 660 East 5th Street in Waverly, Ohio, 45690.
