Country Meadows of Forks in Easton, a brand new retirement community currently under construction, is on track to open this summer. Already, more than 40 percent of apartments are reserved.
Country Meadows of Forks looks more like a bustling social center than a traditional retirement community. Construction of the unique and elegant arts and crafts style building is already under roof with workers busily completing the interior. Country Meadows Marketing Directors Sharon Dusky and Terry Weber are excited to see the new community come together.
“It’s still a hard hat area,” says Weber, noting that the marketing team is inviting prospective residents to tour Country Meadows of Bethlehem so they can experience what life will be like at the Forks campus. “What I’m seeing is absolutely beautiful—everything from the detailed woodwork to the wall of stacked stone at the rear of the dining room. The kitchen is so well laid out, and the views are just beautiful.”
The campus is divided into three levels of service. On the far left a two-story structure will be home to independent living accommodations on the second floor and personal care apartments on the ground floor. The center building holds common areas including private and formal dining rooms, kitchen, fitness center, bar, library and chapel. The far right will be home to the Connections Neighborhood offering memory support services and secure dementia care.
Some of the campus’ features already complete include drywall in many areas, floor-to-ceiling stacked natural stone wall in the dining room, flooring, ceilings and light fixtures. Safety features such as the sprinkling system are in the installation process.
With so many apartments already reserved, marketers caution that waiting until the facility is complete may be too late. Interested community members may stop by Country Meadows of Forks at 175 Newlins Road West, or contact Forks@CountryMeadows.com or 484-544-3880.
