In Warrington, as well as around the metro Philadelphia region, spring is in the air. For those living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it is no different. The snow has melted, the grass is greening, and tulips are pushing up. As beams of light penetrate the windows, the sun’s warmth is felt, and it instinctively draws the hibernators to the outside.
Most people enjoy being outdoors, getting fresh air and feeling the rays on the skins. It is refreshing for body and soul. Memory care communities also recognize this need to be outside and how it enhances one’s quality of life. A well-designed memory care community takes the needs, desires, and activities of residents into consideration when designing the building and facilities. Recognizing the importance of being outside, many communities include outdoor spaces that are comfortable and secure for residents.

We are pleased to say the Bristol House Memory Care in Warrington, just south of Doylestown, PA, is entering the final phase of construction. Within the next few weeks, the first residents will be moving in. As you can see in the below photos the building is coming together nicely, although it is still an active work area and needs some finishing touches and final clean up.
Below are the reception and lobby area, the secure outdoor patio, and a photo of the architectural elements inside.
