Presbyterian Homes, The Moorings

Arlington Heights, IL

An existing sheltered care building will be torn down and replaced with a new residence for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Currently people with dementia are housed with other skilled nursing residents. The new residence, connected to the assisted living building, is designed to provide homelike living spaces that allow for more freedom and independence. The new 29,172 square foot building is a single story residence with a basement, and has 20 individual suites. Each suite includes a bay with a window seat.  Dining, living and activity spaces are on the opposite site of the building so that spaces are flooded with daylight and overlook the center courtyard space for residents to access freely.  A quiet room, parlor and support spaces are discreetly located away from the active living spaces in the core of the building.  An existing sheltered care building will be torn down and replaced with a new residence for people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
