Our Plan

In 2016 Methodist Village Senior Living announced the $50 million redevelopment of our campus to become a “Life Plan Community”. A Life Plan Community merges active senior living and planning for the future. It is an environment that offers senior adults a lifestyle with amenities and living options based on their life needs, in a continuum of care ranging from independent to assisted living, memory support, and skilled nursing care. The new community will be constructed in phases on our existing thirty-acre beautiful location in the heart of Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Phase I – A 26-residence Assisted Living Center and a 19-residence Memory Care Center (Certified Alzheimer’s Special Care Unit), with a wide range of amenities, including a chapel, gathering and social spaces, multi-use medical treatment center, restaurant-style dining options and a wellness center.

Phase II – Exterior renovations of our current Care Center, which has not been updated since 1962, and the construction of a new stand-alone, short-term rehabilitation center with a projected 30-bed capacity.

Phase III – Independent Living Cottages, featuring a variety of accommodations, opportunities and size.
