LSC to open independent living apartments in Hickory

Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) is excited to announce it is adding faith-based, nonprofit, and reasonably priced independent living senior apartments in Hickory, North Carolina.

The project will begin with 72 one-and-two-bedroom apartments on Springs Rd. on the campus of Trinity Village.

LSC has served the Catawba County area for over 60 years with Hickory’s two premier health care communities, Trinity Village and Trinity Ridge, providing skilled care, rehab, memory care, and assisted living. LSC is also a founder and partner in the vital PACE At Home program, serving Medicaid/Medicare-eligible elders in their own home.

These apartments will allow LSC to serve the entire continuum for elders in the area.

“For many years Catawba County friends have asked LSC for senior apartments in Hickory,” LSC President and CEO Ted Goins said. “From Ecclesiastes, ‘For everything there is a season,’ and this is our season.”

Limited services in the independent living apartments will include an emergency call system, housekeeping services, activities, concierge case management services, meals, and a wellness program.

Construction on the apartment complex is set to begin in October 2023.
