The goal in developing the new Shenandoah Memory Care at The Virginian was to elevate memory care design through evidence-based practices and new technologies to create a next generation, “high-touch/high-tech” model.
The project team includes: Moseley Architects (architect; Richmond, Va.), Meyer Design (interior designer; Ardmore, Pa.), Allied Partners (construction manager; Bend, Ore.), Carle Consulting (memory care designer; Oak Hill, Va.), and Life Care Services (management company/operator; Des Moines, Iowa).
It increased occupancy to 36 units and expanded from one to two conjoining wings, totaling 20,000 square feet.
In addition, the program is among the first memory care environments in the nation to utilize both circadian rhythm lighting throughout as well as a hand-motion gaming system, advancing applications of technology for residents with Alzheimer’s and related dementia.
