  • Bright, open-concept neighborhood maximizes sight lines across functional areas and gathering spaces
  • Biometric lighting adjusts to provide the natural spectrum of light throughout the day, which can lessen afternoon and evening “sundowning” associated with dementia
  • A secure terrace offers shade and fresh air throughout the day
  • Open-concept kitchen and dining area provides opportunities to participate in food preparation, enjoy a social eating environment and stay connected with familiar aspects of everyday life – while cooking aromas stimulate appetites often diminished by the effects of dementia
  • Built-in memory display cases containing photos and personal mementos located outside each apartment encourage staff and visitor engagement with residents and support an individualized approach to care
  • Circular hallways allow for easier navigation
  • Modern studio and shared suite apartment options are the largest in the market
  • Electronic locks track who comes and goes for added security
  • Decor features a painting donated by artist Susan Schneider Williams – wife of late actor Robin Williams, who suffered from Lewy body dementia
