The Memory Center, Richmond was completed as a 35,000-square-foot, assisted living memory care complex near Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital at CenterPointe. The Memory Center is a 48-suite live-in facility and covered town center which provides exceptional care for those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
The facility was built to meet the challenging conditions of an aging brain with a caring, interactive community. Utilizing the latest in science, nutrition and interactive therapies, daily structured activities provide meaningful purpose to those with memory loss.
Unique Neighborhoods: To maintain a sense of home the building design features four neighborhoods that surround the Town Center, each with their own relaxing living room, dining room and full kitchen.
The building features both private and semi-private suites and only admit residents who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Shared living, dining, activity kitchens, and central bathing rooms. Central facilities include administrative offices, commercial kitchen, and an experiential activity center.
