The existing medical model, memory care neighborhood was renovated to create inviting, person-centered living spaces for nursing residents with dementia. This total transformation was accomplished within the constraints of the existing neighborhood through carefully phased, incremental renovations, allowing the provider to maintain occupancy throughout. The nursing station was relocated to a more central location for improved efficiency, but more importantly, to free up its former brightly-lit space at the end of the corridor for a new family room which leads into a secure courtyard. A serving kitchen and nourishment station were added to enable staff members to accommodate resident preferences.
