In December 2011, JMS Builders & Developers, Inc. began construction and remodeling of the future site of a Wellness Center for a local healthcare company in Roanoke, VA. The commercial construction renovations JMS Builders is completing will transform this office building into a healthcare facility. This health center will help provide an alternative to conventional nursing home care; it follows the belief that the needs of the elderly are best met in the community where possible.
Some of the services the Wellness Center will offer are Primary Care, Therapy, Adult Day Care, Social Services and Meals for elderly members of the community who choose to live at home rather than in a skilled nursing facility. Although construction has just gotten underway, the healthcare company hopes to have the center up and running in the Fall of 2012.
