National Memory Care Experts Announce Plan to Build First Stand-Alone Memory Care Community in Towne Lake
WOODSTOCK, Ga. --(Business Wire)--
The LaSalle Group is announcing its plan to build a cutting-edge nearly
28,000 square foot, $9.8 million memory care community that will
exclusively care for residents with Alzheimer's, dementia and memory
impairment. Autumn Leaves of Towne Lake will provide a home-like
environment that includes a family approach and expert care from
dedicated staff with highly specialized training. Autumn Leaves of Towne
Lake (1962 Eagle Drive in Woodstock) will be the second Autumn Leaves
memory care community in Metro Atlanta. The project is the result of a
partnership with The LaSalle Group and Silverado Interests.
"We are excited about this opportunity to bring our expertise to
families living with Alzheimer's and dementia in Towne Lake," said
Brenda Brantley, chief financial officer of The LaSalle Group. "Towne
Lake currently has no communities offering memory care, and we are going
to fill that gap for families that need our services."
The design team will use the latest Alzheimer's and dementia research to
ensure the community fits the needs of the residents. From the color
scheme to the type of furniture to the spacing of the lights to the
layout of the building, everything is chosen with the residents in mind.
Autumn Leaves of Towne Lake will also have its own culinary director who
will prepare fresh food from scratch. A team consisting o a chef, a
nutritionist, and a dietician will collaborate to create healthy and
flavorful meals for the residents. In addition, the community will have
aquariums in the dining rooms, which according to scientific research,
will create a calming effect and increase appetites-priorities for
families living with Alzheimer's or dementia.
"Cherokee County has experienced high growth, and with that comes a
greater need for focused Alzheimer's and dementia care," said Ilde
Robles, director of Georgia development, The LaSalle Group. "The county
has been very helpful, and the county leaders understand the benefit we
will bring to their area."
The residents and families will also notice a tremendous benefit when it
comes to life enrichment. The community will enhance the residents'
lives through life enrichment programs that use touch, laughter, music,
and dance to engage senses, personality, the mind, spirit and body.
"We believe in finding the best way to keep our residents engaged. We
tailor our programs to meet each person's individual personalities, and
we help them to reach their full potential," said Chad Anderson,
president of Constant Care Family Management. "As memory care experts,
our staff undergoes rigorous training to help each member of our team
understand Alzheimer's and dementia."
Autumn Leaves of Towne Lake will also offer free programs to the public
including seminars, support groups, memory testing and free respite care
for five hours on Wednesdays to give caregivers a break. Autumn Leaves
of Towne Lake is expected to open fourth quarter of 2013.
