Unity Health System Opens Memory Care Senior Living Community
Unity Health System opened the next phase of its expansion project at The Villages, Unity’s independent senior living community located on the Park Ridge Health Care campus in Greece.
The James J Bell Sr. Hamlet and Memory Care Community opened June 3. This 20-apartment memory care community offers enhanced services for seniors facing memory loss and completes The Villages‘ continuum of elder care offered on its Greece campus.
“The Villages at Unity has served as a model independent living community for seniors since it opened in 1990,” said Don Felter, President of Unity Senior Housing. “With the addition of this memory care community, we’re proud to offer the most comprehensive range of elder care in the region with a variety of services located right on the same campus as Unity Hospital.”
Depending on the level of care needed, seniors can easily transition between the Villages’ independent living community, to assisted care apartments, the new memory care community – which offers a higher level of care and security for seniors who have Alzheimer’s Disease, Dementia-related diseases and/or cognitive decline, and its 80-bed skilled nursing home Park Ridge Living Center.
Along with comfortable amenities and regularly scheduled life enrichment activities, the community offers enhanced 24-hour staff support and easy access to Unity Health System’s health care professionals and services.
The opening of the memory care community is part of a larger four-year expansion project for The Villages at Unity, which will be complete in July. Visit villagesseniorliving.org/expansion.aspx for more information.
