Memory Care Architecture and Design Projects

Our Memory Care Facilities are designed to support the health, comfort and well-being of residents affected by neurological traumas and disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s disease.

Each memory care design uses elements that aid residents treatment and care. Design elements include:

  • Racetrack Concept: a logical circulation system allowing residents to safely wander without getting lost, by enabling them to return to their starting point
  • Open Kitchens: a home-like kitchen space that encourages residents to observe and participate in meal preparation, this concept can be therapeutic for memory recollection
  • Sensory Engagement: implementation of lighting, textures, flooring, and color schemes that aid in safety, comfort and promote therapeutic familiarity
