community
traditionally built as a one-story, standalone
building within residential settings. It has
room for 10-14 residents and often universally
trained staff, which fosters a natural family-like
setting. Many residents find the smaller scale
more manageable than larger-scale environments,
but creating opportunities for the social
connections and varied experiences of larger or
more diverse groups can be challenging. Small
house settings also are well suited for connections
to outdoor gardens and natural light from
multiple exposures, which can help minimize
sundowning.
The neighborhood. Often attached to an existing
building, this model comprises 20-48
rooms arranged into multiple residential wings
that converge on a social core that includes living,
dining, and activity spaces. Neighborhoods
can be new construction or repurposed existing
space. Because of the model's slightly larger
scale compared to a house model, the support

space, kitchens, spas, and even staffing can be
shared by a larger population, which provides
some efficiencies and ultimately lower costs
per bed.
Because these memory care neighborhoods
are part of a greater retirement community,
they can provide more opportunities for larger
and more varied social connections. In cases
where the model is created within existing
space, such as a former assisted living floor,
the infrastructure can present design challenges
or dictate a linear design, which generally
isn't preferred. For example, it can be difficult
to avoid dead-end corridors in this type of renovation.
Placing an easily identifiable activity
space, such as an art studio or life station, at the
end of a corridor can provide opportunity for
engagement and helps with spatial literacy.
Downtown. A model that gained a lot of momentum
a number of years ago was the downtown
or Main Street concept, where there was a
