Artis Senior Living to Celebrate Grand Opening of First Community in Massachusetts

MCLEAN, Va. – January 9, 2017 – Artis Senior Living will celebrate the grand opening of its first memory care community in Massachusetts– Artis Senior Living of Reading – at 1100 Main Street on Thursday, February 2, from 3-6 p.m. Artis President and CEO, Don Feltman, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside Robert W. LeLacheur, Jr., Town Manager of Reading at 4 p.m.

“We are excited for the grand opening of our first memory care residence in Massachusetts and are humbled by the warm welcome we’ve received from the Reading neighborhood and surrounding area. We feel privileged to be setting a new bar in quality care for seniors affected by Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia,” said Feltman.

The new 64-suite residence will be the first two-story, freestanding memory care community in Reading. The community is comprised of four neighborhoods – Parker Tavern, Beacon Hill, Longfellow, and Cape Cod– that create an intimate environment with familiar living spaces. Each level of the community includes a central core, known as the “Town Center” flanked by two distinct “neighborhoods” that serve as intimate living spaces. The Town Centers feature a host of amenities including a neighborhood center for community gatherings and a studio for activities on the first floor; as well as a health center, beauty and barber shop, spa, café, and gallery on the second floor.

Executive Director Beth McNelis noted, “This is going to be an evening to remember for our Artis team, colleagues, friends, associates, future residents and family members. We look forward to providing the families of Reading with the best in memory care for many years to come.”

Influenced and refined by 20 years of operational experience, the new residence is thoughtfully designed to enhance residents’ cognition and quality of life by creating a home environment that is both nurturing and comfortable. The design features include smaller-scale spaces, residential finishes, and the use of themes for queuing and location recognition.

The project was designed by LK Architecture of Wichita, Kan. and was constructed by Dellbrook Construction /JK Scanlan Company, LLC of Quincy, Mass.. The new community will mark Artis’s ninth residence in operation. For more information on Artis Senior Living of Reading, please visit the website at or call 781-872-1907.
