ABILENE, TX–Sagora Senior Living opened Lyndale – Abilene Memory Care as an expansion of Lyndale – Abilene Senior Living, Thursday, Aug. 30. Located at 6568 Central Park, the single-story, 44,494 gross square-foot memory care community offers 64 apartments, in four neighborhoods. Sagora also owns and operates University Place Senior Living, in Abilene.
With the addition of a memory care community, the Lyndale – Abilene Senior Living campus offers a true continuum of care for seniors. Residents can age in place, transitioning from one level of care to the next without leaving the campus or the associates they have come to know and trust.
“Sagora is proud to expand our Lyndale campus to include Memory Care for seniors with dementia living in and around Abilene,” said Sagora Senior Living President Bryan McCaleb. “Here we will implement our Sagora Pathways Memory Care Program, which is a focused approach to programming that provides the best possible lifestyle, care and environment for our Memory Care residents.
“I’m pleased Sagora can be part of the city’s developing southside,” McCaleb added. “Our location not only adds to Abilene’s growing economy, but also is convenient to medical facilities, restaurants and prime shopping areas for our residents and families.”
Lyndale – Abilene Memory Care further engages residents and enhances their comfort levels by providing a unique variation of a “Town Center” inside the community. Created to replicate Hometown, USA, the spacious common area allows residents and families to see a movie in the Town Center Theater, savor a snack and a drink in the Town Center Café, or get a haircut in the Town Center Barber or Beauty Shop without leaving the secured interior of the memory care community.
The Memory Care community’s unique neighborhood living concept is specifically designed to meet the special needs of those suffering from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, as the disease progresses and our residents’ care needs increase.
“Each new resident is evaluated, and a custom care plan is designed and followed to meet his or her individual needs,” said Senior Vice President Dara Brown. “Our skilled, compassionate associates provide age and ability appropriate programs, which help build confidence in our residents. We try to involve residents’ friends and family as often as possible.”
Sagora Senior Living is one of the nation’s top 50 senior housing operators. The privately-owned company operates senior living communities throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Florida and soon in California. Living options include independent living, assisted living, respite and memory care.
