Recognizing a growing need, the Osborn converted seven existing one-bedroom apartments into a 13-room assisted living memory care neighborhood. The neighborhood provides residents with various forms of dementia the freedom to move safely throughout the wing and secure courtyard. The intentionally modest-sized household has its own front door and provides ample activity space, including a great room with country-style serving kitchen, fireplace, sitting areas and dining space. Working within the constraints of the existing wing, the design solution “opens up” the center of the neighborhood with the great room spaces to break down the scale and bring in natural light. The addition of a four season sunroom, overlooking an existing perennial garden, provides secure access to the outdoors.
