Methodist Village Announces Opening of Assisted Living/Alzheimer’s Special Care Community


FORT SMITH, AR (February 21, 2019) – Methodist Village Senior Living (MVSL) invites the community 
to a celebration - the opening of their Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Special Care Community.  
The open house will be held on Wednesday, April 10, from 10:00am until Noon at 7811 Euper Lane, 
Fort Smith, Arkansas.

For nearly 60 years MVSL has been one of the region’s pioneer in providing great care to elders in 
our community.   With the recent expansion, MVSL’s 30-acre campus has been redeveloped into the 
only complete continuum of care “Life Plan Community” in the River Valley.  MVSL offers 
comprehensive total patient care through independent, assisted, rehab, long term and memory care.

The Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Special Care Community is licensed for 45 apartments with 19 
secure protected apartments designed with consideration for special needs of elders with memory 
loss.  The groundbreaking was in November 2017, and Rick Mooney of Van Buren served as the general contractor.  Residents hope to begin moving in April 1.

“We are thankful for the support of such a loving and giving Fort Smith community.  It is because 
of their generous and compassionate giving that we are able to offer this amazing facility.  We 
have a great heritage and are committed to providing incredible life experiences that allow our 
residents and their loved ones to live full, enriching lives,“ said Melissa Curry, CEO.

The Assisted Living level 2 community will provide services that directly help a resident with 
certain routines, activities of daily living, and assistance with medications.  An array of apartment 
styles will be offered.  Amenities will include a multi-treatment center (General Practitioner, 
Dentist, Optometrist, and Podiatrist), restaurant style dining, free laundry facilities, 
barber/beauty shop, Razorback game room, fitness center, chapel/theater room with large screen, 
grand piano, social activities, and much more.

The Alzheimer’s Special Care Community will provide a home for those individuals who are no longer 
able to live independently as a result of Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or a related disorder.  Additional amenities will include a family style dining, retro activity kitchen, secure outdoor 
courtyards, and much more.

The opening of this facility completes Phase I of a 3 Phase plan of enhancements and upgrades to 
complement existing programs and services on the MVSL Campus.    Phase II includes exterior 
renovations of our current Care Center, which has not been updated since 1962, and the construction 
of a new stand-alone, short-term rehabilitation center with a projected 30-bed capacity.  Phase III 
will be the addition of Independent Living Cottages, featuring a variety of accommodations, 
opportunities and sizes.  “We are enhancing our ability to care for our residents and offer the 
community a leading- edge facility for all facets of senior care,” said Phillip Bryant, MVSL Board 
President.

The addition of this community to the campus of MVSL will add approximately 40 full and part time 
positions including LPNs, CNAs, dietary, janitorial and maintenance.  Available positions are 
posted on the MVSL website at methodistvillage.com.
