McGuire Group Alzheimers ALF
The primary focus of this project incorporates the complete development of a Program/Feasibility Study for a new 72-apartment dementia campus adjacent to be located to an existing skilled nursing facility. The residential home-like campus is organized around three resident neighborhood cottages which are subdivided further into three household containing eight residents. Within the neighborhoods, all of the households share common A.D.L. services. Residents will also enjoy green spaces provided that contain healing gardens, covered porches, and specialized simulated environments containing mnemonic cues to recall their past history and memory.
Further social interaction with family, friends and staff takes place at the Community Center Building which ties all three neighborhoods together. In addition to dementia related care, the Community Center also houses Adult Day-care program, General Store, Restaurant, Spa, and a Auditorium/Chapel to be shared with the surrounding community.
