Eben Ezer – Phase 1 includes 54 assisted living and 18 memory care units in the center’s Brush, Colo. senior living community. The improvements will span 54,000 square feet, with the goal of increasing overall capacity and elevating the design of the existing campus. The new assisted living and memory care building will also create a close and visual connection to the outdoors to enhance sensory experiences, which have been shown to stimulate the brain. A gardening room with direct access to the grounds outside will link the interior to the exterior and provide a place for residents to participate in activities like gardening, painting and other artistic pursuits. Quiet rooms will be incorporated, providing residents with access to a calm, restful place with low lighting and no stimuli, something that is of particular benefit for residents with Alzheimer’s or dementia.
