CONROE, TX — Worthington Manor, a luxury senior living community coming to Conroe in November, held its ribbon cutting ceremony on April 29, according to a press release, an event that marked another milestone for the vision of Curtis Lindsey.

Lindsey, CEO and president of Lindsey Commercial Properties, bought the land that used to be the driving range of the Wedgewood Golf Club five years ago and teamed with Jeff Farmer, CEO of Spectra Properties Inc. and Norma Upshur to purchase more land for a total of 72 acres.

The ribbon cutting was another step toward their vision becoming reality.

Worthington Manor, located at 1999 Lakes of Wedgewood Dr., will be more than 135,000 square feet and will take up 26 acres, according to the release. Managed by Insight Senior Living LLC, the new community will feature 72 assisted living apartments, ranging from studios to two-bedroom units, and 46 memory care beds.

An emphasis will be put on community at the new facility, according to Upshur, with amenities that include a full-service spa, bar, art studio, dine-in movie theater, outdoor dining and a demonstration kitchen for cooking classes.

“As we age, we want to feel as if we belong, to be part of a community,” Upshur said in the release. “It is important for our self-worth to integrate into a community, a group, and be around people we trust. Worthington Manor hopes to meet the goals of the seniors and the community.”

The ribbon cutting ceremony was attended by Conroe Mayor Jody Czajkoski and Conroe City Councilmen Raymond McDonald, Duke Coon, Todd Yancy and Curt Maddox, according to the release. After the ceremony, community members and people in the senior living industry attended a public open house.

“I worked with three mayors of Conroe, Conroe City Council, the surrounding HOA communities, and the residents in the area to make Worthington Manor a part of something they all can be proud of and welcome to the community to make a positive impact on their lives,” Lindsey said in the release.
