Inspiring New Care with Dementia Villages

The senior care industry  is reinventing itself. Experts are learning more about what it takes to provide an optimal experience for all residents of assisted living and retirement communities. These communities are taking that research and creating environments to accommodate to residents with special needs like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Harmony Seniors Services has unveiled its new Pheasant Ridge Memory Center which will open Spring 2017. Located at Pheasant Ridge’s Senior Living campus, near the intersection of US-200/I-581 and VA-419. The facility will have 56 units with 64 memory care beds.

The facility will feature a “Town Center concept”  that incorporates historically iconic visual aids, communal living room for family and friends to socialize, as a centrally located kitchen for greater interaction among residents.

This concept is beneficial to those who are suffering from dementia.  Since the cutting edge Netherlands’ Hogewey village began, similar ‘dementia villages’ have become quite an attractive option. Caretakers staff the restaurants, grocery stores, hair solon or other amenities. Resident can live a normal life, but will quickly have access to aid when needed.  This is a great option for seniors in the Roanoke Valley.

This new Roanoke center will encourage residents to engage in activities that stimulate the mind, body and spirit. The center is close to Carilion Roanoke memorial Hospital and HCA Lewis Gale Medical Center.
