The Views largely sought after MeadowView Memory Care Village will be re-created in a smaller neighborhood design mimicked after old Marion. Two neighborhoods of 17 apartments will access the experiential center that will include interactive areas that bring familiar memories from the past such as the old Marion train station, ice cream shop and more.
Each tenant will enjoy a private apartment with a private bath that family will furnish with familiar belongings from home. Family style dining and quaint living room spaces in each neighborhood will provide personalized care in a homelike setting.
The ‘healing design’ is a scientifically based concept that provides exposure to natural sunlight, the comfort of past memories, freedom of movement and way finding in a secure setting. The extensive activities program will encourage physical, cognitive and social engagement. The combination of all of this has historically aided in minimizing behaviors and use of antipsychotic medications. The ultimate goal is to improve quality of life for those living with dementia.
The Views has successfully used this concept in their NW Cedar Rapids location for the last 11 years. Tours of our NW Cedar Rapids location are available upon request. Call Angie McClure at 319-389-2799.
