New memory care planned for Georgia

 

Riverwood Retirement Management Inc. has been selected as the management agent for a new community named Westminster of Dallas, which will be the third Westminster-branded community in the Southeast and the first in Georgia.

The one-story campus will have special slip-resistant flooring and large-print descriptors designed to help with wayfinding. Two separate, secure walking trails will encourage residents to stay outdoors. The entrance will contain a large porte cochère with gas lights and skylights, with other amenities including two living areas will have a nurse-assisted “Cyber Café” for emailing and Skype sessions. The dining rooms will have aquariums and bird sanctuaries. There also will be a large physical therapy room.

“We are very driven to develop this community, and we are glad to have Riverwood's expertise during the early stages and the planning process,” said James Deupree, the developer of the community. “The team truly understands my mindset and the vision for this community well.”

CDH Partners healthcare architects, which designed WellStar East Cobb nearby, will design the community with Beacon Construction Company.

The community is slated to open in late 2016.
