Fully designed to meet the needs of the growing population deserving specialized memory care, the expanded and renovated Lumen Lane Memory Care Center officially opened on May 3. The new space includes a welcoming neighborhood concept and open spaces to give residents a sense of freedom in a safe environment. Uniquely connected to the rest of Light of Hearts Villa, it makes it easy for those who might reside in other areas of the campus to stay close to their loved one, while they remain in a safe, secure environment.
“We were so excited to finally unveil our new and improved memory care area to our residents and staff. After a few delays on the project, our community was more than ready to be able to finally utilize this incredible space,” said Executive Director Breanne Cavileer.
With additional open and well-lit spaces, memory care residents are now able to dine in one room and participate in activities in another. The ample amount of space both indoors and in their new enclosed outdoor patio will enrich their lives and keep them safe. More space on the second floor added 10 more apartments as memory care rooms, expanding the Lumen Lane Memory Care Center even further.
“It’s not just about meeting today’s needs, but looking ahead and anticipating the needs of the future. With highly trained staff, innovative treatments and a commitment to the future for comprehensive memory care, Light of Hearts Villa is stepping forward as the premier center of excellence in our region,” said Breanne.
The community’s support for the project has been exceptional. There are still naming opportunities available. Whether it is sponsoring the patio area, second floor activity area or simply making a gift of $1,000 or more in a loved one’s memory, there are many options to support the ongoing financial impact this project has put on Light of Hearts Villa.
