The Preserve opens at Meridian

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) – A new assisted living facility in Meridian stands out for the quality of life it offers seniors. Meridian Reserve held its grand opening last week.

“We probably had a little over 200 people showing up. We had tremendous support from the community. Weidmann’s organized the event. We have already moved into some of our residences in our retirement cottages. We serve them in our dining room. I think 7 of the 14 have already moved in. We also have deposits on the other 7,” said Chris Holland, executive director of Frontier Management.

Many people have said that when you first enter the establishment you feel like you are on vacation.

“Like you said, look at it. When you walk through the front doors, it tells the story itself,” Holland said.

Residents can prepare their own meals or have them served by their chef.

“Our chef and his incredible cuisine. At the moment, with the few residents we have, we don’t have meals all day. But we will, once our doors open and the assisted residents move in,” Holland said.

“I can’t tell you how excited I was for the grand opening because I felt like we were sitting on Meridian’s best kept secret,” said Terri Buchanan, Director of Lifestyle.

The 33,000 square feet are packed with everything one will need and more.

“We have a fitness center where we offer occupational therapy and speech therapy on site. We have also contracted with Southern Medical Consultants. We offer a nurse practitioner,” Buchanan said.

They also have a theater room, a massage room, and a large yard with a built-in fireplace.

Holland explained why he has worked for this company for 18 years.

“I wake up every day and I want to be able to make a difference. I like to serve the elderly. I enjoy working with other team members who have the same passion. I love working for a company and owner groups who share that too. You know, give seniors an amazing quality of life,” Holland said.

We are located at 4360 Mississippi 39 North. If you would like to visit this facility, call 601-490-4494 for more information.
