The Memory Center believes the challenging conditions of an aging brain should be met with a caring, interactive community designed around the individual. One that recognizes them for who they are today.
The Memory Center in Atlanta is a comprehensive facility specializing in the care of those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia in the Atlanta area. The community is comprised of 48 residential suites designed and constructed around a Town Center concept. The Town Center is a centralized, interactive area featuring a movie theater, library, general store, bank, tavern, ice cream stand and salon along with icons to represent historical Atlanta.
The design concept divides into four neighborhoods of 12 suites, each with its own residential environment that includes living rooms and dining areas. Within a short walk of their apartment, each resident will discover multiple amenities throughout the neighborhood, yet will have no trouble finding their way back. Residents also have access to landscaped secured outdoor courtyards and walking paths.
