This new (107,000 SF) assisted living memory care facility is located in Lakewood Ranch, Florida and include approximately 124 resident rooms, dining rooms, activity areas, a full service commercial kitchen, administrative offices and memory garden walk paths. The design is based upon approximately one-third of the residents who are dependent upon assisted care due to varying degrees of memory ailments. The remaining two-thirds are standard assisted living.
The project required special attention to finish details, elimination of door & shower thresholds, lighting levels and finish colors. Residents afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease and similar ailments view and process their surroundings in a different manner than the average adult.
A state of the art resident tracking system dubbed “Skynet” requires special coordination with the product’s development team. The system monitors resident movement and message staff if atypical behavior is detected. The technology also allows the unlocking of resident doors upon approach and is linked into the facility’s camera system to allow friends & family to check on their loved one through a secure website. Every decision that went into the construction of Creekwood Assisted Living Facility took into consideration the comfort and well being of its future residents.
