On opening day for Edgeworth Park Senior Living in New Town, residents had a chance to enjoy a variety of posh amenities — beauty salon, music room, library, fitness room and a computer center to name a few.
Sounds like it’s a resort, but the recently launched assisted living community for seniors citizens, including those who suffer from Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, is set up to offer its residents the same choices they would have if they lived at home.
“It is all designed to keep our residents active and engaged while maintaining their health and well-being.” said Qudsia Chaudhary, the facility’s executive director.
The community, which held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on April 20 is located on a 4-acre lot at the end of Discovery Park Boulevard.
According to a news release, the facility includes 62 assisted living residences and 21 memory care suites. The complex is organized into mini-neighborhoods under one roof. Residents can choose from among studios, and one- or two-bedroom apartments.
Iowa-based Life Care Services will manage the property. In addition to helping residents with the activities of daily living, Edgeworth Park offers a secure memory care neighborhood for those with memory loss.
Residents who need it will receive highly individualized care designed specifically for each state of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia through the memory care program Heartfelt Connections, also managed by Life Care Services.
“Edgeworth Park has so much to offer,” Chaudhary said previously. “There is a beauty salon, music room, library and computer center, and a wellness and fitness room with a physician’s office and exam space. It is all designed to keep our residents active and engaged while maintaining their health and well-being.”
Scott Wise, co-owner of Edgeworth Park said the community response has been phenomenal.
“Our vision was a place where those who need help with the activities of daily living could enjoy all the comforts of home, as well as remain active and engaged in life,” Wise said. “I think Edgeworth Park exceeds all expectations.”
