Edgewood Memory Care Community

Edgewood, Washington

The goal of Edgewood Memory Care Community, also known as the Cottages at Edgewood, is to create a “family-like” living community for memory care patients where individual residents share the common areas of the campus while still maintaining their own personal space and privacy.

The facility includes a central administrative cottage and three single story residential cottages that accommodate a total of 42 resident rooms for a total capacity of up to 60 dementia residents (Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other memory-related ailments).

The design intent was to create a secure landscaped interior courtyard between the buildings that serves as an outdoor living space allowing the community residents to move freely around the yard and between cottages. The buildings on the campus are connected with a cedar fence and a main controlled entry gate.

The courtyard provides outdoor patios, covered seating, movable tables and chairs, artwork, a rich assortment of nontoxic trees and a diverse assortment of flowering plants accessible by contiguous free flowing walkways.
