LAKEWOOD RANCH — Less than a year after construction began on Windsor Reflections, the Lakewood Ranch-based dementia and memory-care facility will welcome its first residents.
Reflections will host an open house from noon to 4 p.m. May 20, at 8220 Natures Way. Guests will be able to tour the 40-residence facility and meets its leadership. Staff also will be available to conduct memory screenings throughout the event.
Reflections’ design exemplifies its name throughout — the facility is split in half by the front entrance and offices, with the residences situated in mirroring wings on either side. The facility also features a beauty salon, art studios, media rooms, outdoor courtyards and more. Each wing is designed as a large square with a courtyard in the middle. And with windows on all sides, nurses will be able to monitor residents from just about anywhere in the facility, said Lorrie Britton, executive director for Windsor of Lakewood Ranch.
The Reflections entrance foyer will host a weekly Alzheimer’s disease support group, and it also will be available for family members to visit residents.
Reflections will offer five different apartment floorplans ranging from 278 to 384 square feet.
Britton said the new facility was built in response to a growing need for assisting patients with dementia or memory loss and their families.
“We felt we needed a facility that was purpose-built for this,” she said. “Reflections will have a smaller staff-to-resident ratio. And with smaller groups, we will be able to successfully meet the social and personal needs of our residents.”
Reflections will add about 30 to 35 jobs to the East County workforce, Britton said.
