Providence Place looks to create lasting memories for families dealing with dementia

Construction of a 16-unit assisted living memory care center in Hastings is expected to officially break ground next week.

Providence Place, a 10,000-square-foot facility, will be the second built this year by partners MaryLynne Bolden and Jason Lange of Fremont in partnership with Mark Lamb of Lamb Real Estate development in Omaha. The trio laid out its plans before members of the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce and the public during a ceremonial ribbon cutting and groundbreaking ceremony late Wednesday afternoon at the location.

“It’s a specialized environment for people who have some form of dementia,” Bolden said. “What really makes us unique is the training that we provide to our staff in how to communicate with the people who live with us. That makes all the difference.”
