Edgewood Memory Care Community

Edgewood, Washington

The project includes three single story residential cottages which will 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).

In addition to the residential cottages the campus will also include a central administrative cottage. This building program contains spaces for the administrative office suite with a reception area, supporting a general manager, licensed nurse, marketer, activities director, and facility maintenance manager.

The Admin Cottage also houses a central commercial kitchen with a pantry and commercial laundry room. This area includes space for the cook's office, staff lockers and break room, toilet room, dry and cold storage and scullery. The buildings on the campus are connected with a cedar fence and a main controlled entry gate.

The intent is to create a secure landscaped interior courtyard between the buildings that serves as an outdoor living space which allow the community residence to move freely around the yard and between cottages. The courtyard provides outdoor patios, covered seating movable tables and chairs, art and a rich assortment of nontoxic trees and a diverse assortment of flowering plants accessible by a contiguous free flowing walkways.
