Asbury Place Previews New Memory Care Option at Holiday-themed Open House


On Wednesday, Decembert 6, Asbury Place residents, health care professionals, and community members enjoyed a preview of Alpine House, a new memory care neighborhood at Asbury Place in Maryville that offers supportive, caring assistance and health services for older adults with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

This winter the continuing care retirement community in Maryville will open both Alpine and Beech houses, which together will offer 44 residential memory care suites.

 

“The addition of Alpine and Beech houses is part of Asbury Place’s mission to making our community as comfortable, welcoming and accommodating as possible,” said Carolyn Neil, regional director of clinical services for Asbury Place. “These neighborhoods are designed to create a safe, secure and relaxed atmosphere where residents can come together with their family and friends and sit around the fireplace or enjoy a family dinner.”

During the open house, attendees toured private suites and common living spaces, such as a kitchen, dining and living rooms, and other indoor and outdoor spaces that people are accustomed to having in traditional homes. Each house will be continually staffed, and residents make their own decisions, such as when to get up, how to spend their day, when and what they eat, and when they go to bed.

“Those choosing to live at Alpine and Beech houses will have the freedom to enjoy life in their own way,” Neil said. “We look forward to seeing these residents make the houses their home.”
The Alpine and Beech houses in Maryville are part of an $18.5 million expansion and will add 44 new memory care suites and 22 new long-term care suites. Asbury Place Kingsport is undergoing an $8 million expansion that includes one 22-suite, long-term care neighborhood.
