New senior living community
Johnson county residents June 8 celebrated the opening of a new senior living community in the heart of Overland Park. City Council President John Thompson and Chamber President Tracey Osborne were present for the grand opening ceremony.
The Sheridan at Overland Park, located at 10300 Indian Creek Parkway, has 116 assisted living and memory care units and includes prepared meals.
“The Sheridan is unique in that it blends the latest concepts in senior living design with a warm and nurturing environment, all specifically programmed around residents and their families,” said Peter Crane, executive director of The Sheridan at Overland Park. “The response we’ve received from the Overland Park community and the surrounding area has been great, and we’re excited to serve the community for a long time.”
The residence, which will create at least 100 jobs in the area, is a part of CityPlace, a community development that includes shops, walking trails and offices.
