November 12, 2020, Springfield, Illinois – Springfield-area families and seniors have a new option for Memory Care Assisted Living now, one that is part of an established community in this area. Concordia Village Senior Living Community opened the doors of its new Memory Care Assisted Living this fall.
“We have a beautiful, secured space that has been built with our future residents in mind,” said Jacque Bogner, Concordia Village Executive Director. “Just like in our other areas of living, we have a great staff who are dedicated to our residents and looking forward to working with them and their families.”
The addition of Memory Care Assisted Living adds an important service to this established Life Plan Community to be able to provide for all stages. For those who may need additional care in the future, Concordia Village also offers Long Term Care that provides 24-hour care. A Life Plan Community has all levels of living located on one campus, with priority access to more care and assistance if needed. Levels include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Long Term Care, and Short Stay Rehabilitation.
The Memory Care Assisted Living area includes a dining room, living room, enclosed patio and courtyard, and 20 resident apartments. Programming for residents is being developed with a focus on wellness and resident engagement. Staff also plans to provide support resources for family members with loved ones living in Memory Care Assisted Living.
“Our mission of living life to the fullest applies to all of our residents at Concordia Village,” added Bogner. “It’s an honor to be able to offer this opportunity to older adults who need Memory Care.”
