New assisted living slated to begin construction this summer in Bardstown


Friday, April 19, 2019 — A new $14 million assisted living community is being planned to locate in Bardstown at the intersection of Templin Avenue and Lincoln Way.

Trilogy Management Services and DMK Development Group announced plans Friday to build an assisted living and memory care facility that will feature 56 assisted living apartments and 25 memory care apartments in a mix of one and two-bedroom suites.

The community will be built on a five acre tract secured for the facility. Pending approvals, construction on the site could start this summer with completion set for next summer.

The facility will feature a wide range of premium amenities that will include a full-service bistro, multiple dining areas complete with an on-site chef, an activity room designed to accommodate everything from art projects to game nights, a beauty and barber salon, library, and a fitness center.

The exterior of the facility will feature landscaped courtyards, a putting green and lush garden areas.

The $14 million project will create more than 200 construction jobs, and 60-70 permanent jobs.

According to Randall Bufford, President and CEO of Trilogy Management Services, “At Trilogy, we believe that our communities should be places where family comes to live. This belief serves as the cornerstone of our operating philosophy, which establishes and nourishes family values such as compassion, respect, and honesty. We combine beautiful surroundings and out-of-this-world amenities with skilled, caring employees to create communities that are so much more than the sum of their parts.”

Bufford said the company calls this “the Trilogy Difference.”

You can feel it the moment you walk through our doors and see it everywhere you look. It is what sets our communities apart, and why we are a choice both our residents and their families can be proud of.”

Our partnership with an award winning, best in class manager like Trilogy Management Services is an exciting collaboration towards continuing their mission to transform the senior care industry,” he said.
