Atria Senior Living, Inc. has announced plans to renovate Atria Hillcrest, an independent and assisted living community in Thousand Oaks, California. The renovation, scheduled to begin this summer, will include the addition of the Atria’s Life Guidance® memory care neighborhood. The Life Guidance community will include a 27-apartment neighborhood that is expected to open in Spring 2012.
“With an aging population and Alzheimer’s disease on the rise, memory care is a growing need in our area and across the nation,” said Scott Zarrelli, executive director at Atria Hillcrest. “Our Life Guidance neighborhood will provide older people, living with memory impairments, an opportunity to live in a home-like setting designed with dignity and safety in mind. This expansion reflects what we are all about at Atria – providing high quality senior living options in the most comfortable and pleasant surroundings.”
