Artis Senior Living’s celebrated the grand opening of its first memory care community in Pennsylvania, Artis Senior Living of Huntingdon Valley at 2085 Lieberman Drive on Thursday, November 17, 2016.

The new 72-suite residence will be the first freestanding memory care community in Lower Moreland Township. The community is comprised of four neighborhoods – Penn House, Pennypack Creek, Fetter’s Mill, and Huntingdon Station – that create an intimate environment with familiar living spaces.

These neighborhoods connect to a central core, known as the Town Center, with additional amenities including a studio for community gatherings, a studio for activities, a health center and a beauty salon/barber shop. The design features include smaller-scale spaces, residential finishes, and the use of themes for location recognition. The community is designed to enhance residents’ cognition and the quality of life by creating a welcoming environment that feels like home.

A neighborhood is comprised of 16 or 20 resident rooms, a pantry, a dining room, and a family room. To help residents distinguish between neighborhoods, each is designed with unique colors, lights, furniture, and other architectural details. These distinctions develop a sense of belonging and ownership while providing physical markers that assist with recognition and wayfinding.

Resident studios contain ample living space, as well as individual shower facilities, and are furnished with a full size bed, night stand, dresser, lamp and chair. Residents are also welcome to bring their own furnishings.   

The new community in Lower Moreland Township will stimulate the local economy by creating more than 30 permanent jobs.

The new community will mark Artis’ sixth residence in operation. For more information on Artis Senior Living of Huntingdon Valley, please visit the website at http://www.artisseniorliving.com or call 267-471-1721.
