Five-Star Senior Living Opens New Memory Care Unit At Morningside Of Georgetown
NEWTON, MA–Five Star Senior Living (Nasdaq: FVE), one of the nation’s leading senior living and healthcare services providers, today announced the addition of memory care apartments at Morningside of Georgetown in Georgetown, South Carolina. Five Star’s award-winning Bridge to Rediscovery (BTR) program is an innovation leader in memory care, designed to address the unique capabilities and interests of each resident, while encouraging family involvement every step of the way. The program is research based and encourages stimulation of senses, independence and one-on-one interactions in patients suffering from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
“We are excited to bring The Bridge to Rediscovery program to the Morningside of Georgetown,” said Scott Herzig, Five Star’s Chief Operating Officer. “The new wing includes a gardening area, a new dining room and signature elements designed to engage our residents. We want our residents to feel capable and empowered by the environment they are in, and also want to encourage families’ and guests’ interactions while visiting.”
The renovation, which is designed to maximize natural light, features 14 modernized private and semi-private suites, large custom designed common areas such as family-style dining, and a beautifully landscaped secure outdoor garden with walking paths. Residents have the ability to go outside in a safe environment that gives them some independence back while keeping families at ease.
BTR is the winner of multiple Argentum (formerly Assisted Living Federation of America) “Best of the Best” awards. This prestigious national award recognizes excellence in senior living programming. Residents enjoy an award winning program as well as care provided by a professional and attentive team in a community with all of the warmth and hospitality of home.
