Rogue Valley Manor in Medford, Oregon, broke ground on a brand-new Memory Support Center in May. Located on a roughly two-acre parcel that used to house the Resident Gardens, the new, nearly 40,000-square-foot building will have 40 private rooms as well as beautiful, spacious common areas and outdoor walking paths. The Resident Gardens have been moved to a larger, sunnier area of campus, where the plants are thriving.
Motivated by a desire to be proactive and stay ahead of the increasing incidence of memory-impairing conditions, the Manor’s management team and Resident Health Services Task Force, along with PRS, have been working with Portland-based architectural firm Ankrom Moisan to design and develop the Memory Support Center. Both interior and exterior spaces are purposefully designed to encourage positive engagement and daily fulfillment. Construction is estimated to be completed within 12 to 14 months.
