Browning Masonic Community in Waterville, OH, is proud to open their new Pathways project, a 24 bed residence for residents who require various levels of memory support. Designed specifically to aide in memory issues, the facility has a circular floor plan linking 2 separate “households”, allowing residents to wander within a secure environment. Colors, fabrics, textures and accessories were carefully considered by DCI to help create the homelike atmosphere. In line with the Culture Change movement in senior living, the entire space was designed with residents’ privacy, dignity and respect in mind. The result is a warm, inviting, and sometimes playful atmosphere where residents are encouraged to make themselves at home.
Design Collective is pleased to continue its working relationship with Browning Masonic in the upcoming renovation of their assisted and independent living dining areas and kitchen. Be watching for continued updates on this next project.
A similar Pathways project was also recently opened at Western Reserve Masonic Community in Medina, OH, serving the Akron/Cleveland area. Residents at Western Reserve are enjoying their new home that features a similar layout as Browning, but with colors and household themes specifically chosen to reflect their own community.
