Country Place Senior Living broke ground for its new memory care residence on April 13. The memory care residence will feature 16 suites and will be located next door to Country Place’s assisted living residence, located at 1860 N. Washington Avenue, less than a quarter mile from St. Luke’s and other medical facilities. Country Place Memory Care will serve seniors and others who wish to reside in a safe, comfortable, well-appointed environment, where they can enjoy personalized assistance and specialized memory care.
Livingston will be Country Place’s first memory care location in Texas. The home-like environment will include a library, restaurant-style dining room, fireplace, activity room and secure outdoor spaces. All 16 suites are comfortable and spacious, with a choice of private or semi-private living and can be furnished as the resident wishes.
“We’re excited to introduce Country Place Memory Care to local seniors and their families,” Tammy Lenamond, Director of Operations for Country Place, said. “We know residents and their families will be delighted to find a truly caring, perfectly-sized memory care option that offers a safe environment, quality care and socialization with assistance as needed.”
Country Place Memory Care boasts one of the industry’s most innovative activity programs. Residents will be encouraged to participate in activities specifically designed for those with memory care issues. The robust activity program will include events that stimulate the mind, provide physical activity and create moments that bring joy to life. A full-time nurse on staff provides peace of mind to residents and their families, while personal alarm technology allows residents to call for assistance at any time. Assistance programs are tailored for each resident’s specific needs and services include assistance with bathing, dressing, medication, incontinence and more.
Country Place is known for their delicious dining, with three home-cooked meals daily. A spacious, restaurant-style dining room provides an ideal setting to relax and enjoy favorite meals while socializing with friends.
“Residents and family members are often surprised when they first visit a County Place residence. We design our residences to be intimate and home-like, the exact opposite of traditional, institutional-feeling memory care facilities. The residence will be simply beautiful, with comfortable decor and a home-like atmosphere,” Lenamond said.
