A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the grand opening of a new state-of-the-art assisted living and memory care facility in Sugar Land. Services offered at the Village at Sugar Land include hospice, aged care, home and health care services, a rehab center, and a health resort. It has an occupancy of 107.

“We offer a place for residents to come and get that extra assistance that the families and or the residents themselves can’t provide,” said Brett Barker, the facility’s executive director. “We offer medication management, we have caregivers assist residents with activities of daily living, such as combing hair, grooming and dressing. We provide meals and activities.”

The facility is family-owned and operated by two couples — Mark and Diane Kurtz, and Binu Kurian and Jincy Jacob.

“My wife and I are nurses,” said Kurian. “We have been in the senior care industry for 25 years. This is an addition to our other existing businesses.”

Occupancy is currently at approximately 30 percent. The average cost of occupying a studio or an apartment at the facility is $4,895 per month.

Kurian and Jacob are CFO and COO at the Village at Sugar Land. The couple reside in Sugar Land with their daughter (16) and son (12).
