Connectedness is a basic human need that is particularly important with those with cognitive impairments. "Circle of Friends " is a daily gathering that stimulates conversation to enhance engagement and connection.
Routines include exercise, music and singing, and the “breaking of bread” traditions that are prevalent in every culture found around the world. Through this structure, elders have roles that give them purpose and meaning. They listen and contribute and can be successful in participating in a group activity no matter what their level of cognitive challenge.

Since those with dementia do best with individualized, personal care, the Village is divided into three distinctly separate “cottages,” each with its own living room, den, kitchen, and family-style dining room. Live plants, birds, and music enhance an already delightful, cozy living area. Natural light bathes the living and dining areas through expansive windows that look out on a courtyard filled with colorful plants and flowers, backed by a magnificent forested hillside.
The secured outdoor courtyards are planned to be an integral part of the residents’ experience. They can be enjoyed passively from the indoors and the “rocking chair porch,” or more actively by residents strolling the winding walks or by growing their own flowers and vegetables in the raised garden beds. A gazebo and trellis-covered bench provide places to rest or visit with family members at outdoor barbecues.
