The existing medical model neighborhood was renovated to create inviting living spaces for residents with dementia. The 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 behind the scenes for improved efficiency, but more importantly, to free up its former brightly-lit space at the end of the corridor for a family room which leads into a secure courtyard. A serving kitchen and nourishment station enable staff members to accommodate resident preferences and snack requests.
