Ecumen recently announced the completion of a new memory care community in Apple Valley, Minnesota which is part of Ecumen’s assisted living community. The Centennial House. The $3.7 million memory care expansion features 20 memory care residences that complements its 60 assisted living residences. Ecumen sees the need for more senior living developments that provide specialized solutions for memory care.
"Our focus was to create a very open, easily navigable floor plan with plenty of natural light to contribute to a vibrant environment," said Tom Opatz, who led the development process for Ecumen. "We want people to feel very comfortable and welcome from the minute they walk through the door, and based on the feedback we’re receiving, we’re accomplishing that."
"Ecumen and its professionals at The Centennial House have been great assets to Apple Valley, and I am very pleased that they have expanded and brought these important services to the residents of our community," said Apple Valley Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland.
