NEWTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Five Star Senior Living (Nasdaq: FVE), one of the nation’s leading senior living and healthcare services providers, today announced the completion of the Bridge to Rediscovery (BTR) expansion project at The Forum at Memorial Woods in Houston, TX. Five Star’s BTR program is a leader in the senior living industry, drawing inspiration from the Montessori approach to education to address the individual needs and wants of residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. BTR provides one-on-one interactions between residents and caregivers, building on their prevailing strengths while encouraging engagement to create fulfilling days for residents and peace of mind for families.
The BTR renovation was designed to be inviting and to support exploration and interaction in a secure setting. Five Star’s tasteful and comfortable updates feature new furnishings, artwork and lighting. The centerpiece is a spacious new dining room that brings the entire community together:
“The new dining area creates a homelike environment, initiating engagement between both residents and staff, improving overall wellness and comfort throughout the community,” said Scott Herzig, Five Star’s Chief Operating Officer.
BTR is the winner of multiple Argentum (formerly Assisted Living Federation of America) “Best of the Best” awards. This prestigious national award recognizes excellence in senior living programming. Residents enjoy an award winning program as well as care provided by a professional and attentive team in a community with all of the warmth and hospitality of home.
The Forum at Memorial Woods strives to meet the current and future needs of residents with Independent Living, Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s & Memory Care and Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation on a full service, upscale campus overlooking Memorial Park in the renowned Galleria area.
