Memory Care Community ActivCare at Bressi Ranch was
recognized last week as Project of the Year by the 55+ Housing Council of the
SoCal Building Industry Association. Touted as a model of inspiration for other
55+ housing developments, ActivCare at Bressi Ranch received the honor among
other memory care communities in Southern California for its innovative design
that meets the needs of its residents.
Since 1995, the SAGE Awards have honored individuals,
projects and programs that have made an outstanding contribution to enhancing
the quality of life for Southern California [Santa Barbara to San Diego]
residents aged 55+.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are honored to
receive such recognition among our peers,Ã¢â‚¬ stated W. Major Chance, ActivCare
founder and chief executive officer. Ã¢â‚¬Å“ActivCare at Bressi Ranch incorporates
the best ideas from our companyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 25 years of designing, building and operating
residential communities for seniors with AlzheimerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s or related dementias. We
believe that it is truly the next generation of memory care communities.Ã¢â‚¬
ActivCare at Bressi Ranch,
which opened in November of 2011, was specifically designed and built to serve
the needs of those with memory loss. An open floor plan provides freedom of
movement for residents while allowing memory-impaired residents prompts such as
colorful murals and a Living Wall to find their way. All paths lead back to the Great Rooms where residents gather for
daily meals, exercise classes, musical performances and hand-on activities,
reducing confusion and agitation.
The community offers a continuum of care for all stages of
memory loss. Four residential neighborhoods, each serving a different level of
care, congregate into Great Rooms. The Bressi Club is operated as a self-contained
neighborhood and is home to residents in early stages of memory loss. Another
neighborhood is designed and furnished to care for residents in end stage or on
Ã¢â‚¬Å“For the last quarter
of a century we have cared for more than 4,000 individuals with memory loss
through our ActivCare program at our various senior communities,Ã¢â‚¬ said Chance.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Through that experience we believe that we have crafted an innovative model
that offers the best memory care.Ã¢â‚¬
