Following in its century-long tradition of person-centered care, Hooverwood adds another element to its services for healthy aging with the grand opening of The Residences Kraft Commons, A Hooverwood Assisted Living Community. Official dedication events will take place on Sunday, August 18 from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., and will include tours of the new 26-apartment addition before a dessert reception in the newly renovated Social Hall at Hooverwood.

Sunday’s event will dedicate the center in appreciation of its donors and support from the community. Representatives from Hooverwood and the Hooverwood Board of Directors will attend along with Indianapolis Mayor, Joe Hogsett, who will proclaim August 18, 2019, to be “Hooverwood and Kraft Commons Day” in Indianapolis. Leaders from the Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, members of the Hooverwood Capital Campaign Committee, and Rabbi Dennis Sasso of Congregation Beth El Zedeck will also be in attendance to dedicate the new addition.

Hooverwood has truly earned its place as a respected skilled nursing facility and will proudly carry on that legacy into the assisted living offerings at Kraft Commons. This addition will provide a new and luxurious option for Indianapolis-area seniors ready to experience high-quality, affordable living in a safe and contemporary environment. The construction of this state-of-the-art extension to the newly renovated Hooverwood skilled nursing facility was made possible by a $34 Million Capital Campaign.

Located at 7019 Hoover Road, Kraft Commons is a two-story facility featuring 26 assisted living apartments ranging in size from studio to two-bedroom dwellings.  First-class amenities include chef-prepared dining, a state-of-the-art fitness center, outdoor courtyard with putting green and dog park, bistro, movie theatre, and library among many others. In addition to the features listed above, Kraft Commons is in a highly desirable, wooded location on the north side of the Max and Mae Simon Jewish Community Campus, providing easy access to other nearby facilities such as the Jewish Community Center.

A limited number of residences are still available for the community’s flexible, month-to-month rental program. For more information, visit Kraft Commons or call 317-644-8257.
