Belmont Village Hollywood Heights is undergoing an interior transformation starting Nov. 1, with a conversion of 2,000-square-feet of patio space into a new Bistro/Club area and screening room for assisted living residents, their families and guests.
• Highlights of the new Bistro/Club area will be a modern design, similar to that of popular coffee shops, custom computer stations and Wi-Fi, soft seating for conversation, a poker table and a pool table.
• The new screening room will hark back to the “Golden Age” of Hollywood with Art Deco design. Dimmable wall sconces will add dramatic lighting and plush crimson velvet drapes will create an insulated space that feels miles away from the world outside.
Upstairs, Belmont Village is expanding its Memory Care capacity with 17 additional two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio apartments tailored for those with Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Residents in this dedicated area will benefit from Belmont Village’s highest level of memory support, Person-Centered Living. Residents have a specially trained team and a nurse on site 24/7 to manage cognitive and health needs.
Both phases of the expansion are expected to be complete in early January 2016.
“Choosing a senior living community is one of the most important decisions a family will make. Finding one that is vibrant, supportive and safe tops the list,” said Patricia Murphy, executive director, Belmont Village Hollywood Heights. “This expansion will give us great new areas for social activities, while allowing us to offer more options for our memory care residents, in terms of both programming and space.”
Belmont Village Hollywood Heights also has a program called Circle of Friends for residents with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) and early-stage memory loss. Residents remain in their assisted living apartments and participate in a 7-day-a-week program of research-based group activities led by a dedicated, specially trained staff.
