Artis Senior Living to Celebrate Grand Opening of First Community in Connecticut
MCLEAN, Va. – January 8, 2017 – Artis Senior Living’s will celebrate the grand opening of its first memory care community in Connecticut– Artis Senior Living of Branford – at 814 East Main Street on Thursday, January 12, from 3-6 p.m. Artis President and CEO, Don Feltman, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony alongside James B. Cosgrove, First Selectman and Terry Elton, Branford Economic Developer at 4 p.m.
“We are looking forward to joining the local healthcare community in serving the senior population on the shoreline, and 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 freestanding memory care community in Branford. The community is comprised of four neighborhoods – Thimble Islands, Stony Creek, Indian Neck and Branford Point – 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.
Executive Director Trish Keaney 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 Branford 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 Enterprise Builders of Hartford, Conn. The new community will mark Artis’ seventh residence in operation.
