An Ontario-based company has purchased a retirement home for about $20.5 million in Moose Jaw, and is ready to move in tenants.

On Tuesday, Extendicare announced they had purchased the West Park Crossing Retirement Community from Brightwater Senior Living Group.

Already about a dozen people have put down a deposit to purchase within the 79-suite building in northwestern Moose Jaw. (Some of these suites could house a couple.)

Extendicare CEO Tim Lukenda said they purchased the facility because they were looking for opportunities to grow their business in retirement communities.

They agreed to acquire the building from Brightwater when it was completed, which happened recently.

"It just got its certificate of occupancy in the last few days," he said. "We hope to have our first residents moving in within a week."

The building will offer independent and assisted living.

 "We offer a memory care portion of our building that offers the kinds of service that enhanced and are appropriate form people that suffer from Alzheimer's and dementia in their later years," Lukenda added. 

The facility was constructed without government assistance, and attendants will pay out of pocket to live there. 

Extendicare also has a long-term care facility within the city.
