Assisted living facility under construction in Teays Valley

Jun. 27, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

The Cathcart Group, a Charlottesville-based real estate developer, has announced construction of a new $16 million assisted living facility to be located in Teays Valley.

Bellaire at Devonshire will be an assisted living community to serve Putnam County and the surrounding areas. Located at 5 Bexley Drive in Scott Depot, it will include 64 assisted living and 24 memory care units for patients with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The property is 4.34 acres.

Residents can choose from a variety of unit sizes, floor plans, locations and features, including the option of enjoying their own "back door" to a private patio. Memory care units will be located in a private one-story wing of the building with secure access points, and residents will have their own private courtyard and private dining room.

The facility also will include state-of-the-art technology such as an emergency call system with upgraded features and an Internet-based therapy program for residents with dementia that involves family and resident interaction via audio/video.

The community will feature state-of-the-art technology combined with an amenity package that includes fitness center, movie theatre, library, beauty salon, Wi-Fi, computer stations, card/game room, cafe/deli and crafts area. Construction began in early June.

POPPY'S PRODUCE: Andrea and Dee "Poppy" Leffingwell and Chuck and Kendra Heim have opened Poppy's Produce, a fresh market that is located near the Robert C. Byrd Bridge in Chesapeake, Ohio.

About five years ago, the Leffingwells started the Fresh Market as a fundraiser at Ebenezer Medical Outreach and then went on to have the market at Huntington's Kitchen. The project ended due to lack of funding, so the Leffingwells joined the Heims to open Poppy's Produce at 114 2nd Ave., Chesapeake.

"We leased a large three-story white house and took a leap in this economy to start this new business," Andrea Leffingwell said.

Right now, the market is selling local vegetables from several local farmers and Amish produce, she said.

"On any of the days we are open, you can get homegrown tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, squash, zucchini and lots of other things when available," she said. "Dee is a great produce man and works seven days a week to procure the produce fresh from the field. We are looking forward to a great fall with hundreds of pumpkins."

The market will be open year-round selling herbs, spices, cooking items, bulk candy, collectibles and more. Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. It also can be found on Facebook.
