At RiverWoods Durham, another assisted living facility in New England, the memory support community is designed in a “small household” model that creates an intimate and comfortable experience for residents, something that is showcased whenever prospective residents come in for a tour.
“It’s really about the visiting prospect and their family members seeing the community connections that RiverWoods has created through their person-centered approach,” Kellie Fiers said, Senior Living Counselor at RiverWoods Durham. “Relationships, socialization, growth, sense of purpose and continued learning should be a part of our lives at every age.”
