Construction has begun on the Continental Retirement Community of Anaheim, a residential facility for those 65 and older who are healthy and active but who no longer want to bother with caring for a house and cooking meals. It is expected to open in January, 1986.
The project, on 7.2 acres at the corner of Anaheim Hills and Nohl Ranch roads in Anaheim Hills, will contain 204 apartments ranging from 550 to 900 square feet, along with a dining room, spas, swimming pool, shuffleboard and lawn bowling, gardens, lounges, library, meeting room, beauty salon and barbershop, and an in-house limousine service to take residents shopping, to medical appointments or to recreational and social activities.
In addition to meal service in the dining room, each apartment will contain a kitchenette and state-of-the-art communication equipment connected to a 24-hour response desk. Residents will have the use of a private subterranean parking structure with elevator access to the lobby.
Rentals will be on a month-to-month basis and will range from $1,300 to $2,000 a month, which will include meals, maid service, transportation, laundry and other necessities but not such services as the beauty salon or barbershop.
