Since 1992, LiveWell (formerly
Alzheimer's Resource Center of
Connecticut) has focused exclusively on caring for individuals at all stages of Alzheimer's
disease and related dementias.
To create an innovative campus
environment focused on living
well rather than the provision of
care, multi-phased updates to the
campus include the introduction
of the River Homes-a unique
living arrangement for people
with dementia who need limited
support. This new housing option was the result of a planning
process that provided a forum
for people living with dementia
to help define programming
objectives.
The River Homes are four
paired small houses that take
advantage of surrounding views.

Each residence provides a coliving setting, for seven elders
and one care partner, with all of
the comforts and human scale of
a traditional home. Paired homes
share a quiet room, great room,
and covered deck on the first
floor and lounge, four-season
room and green roof patio space
on the second floor.
Each individual house has its
own kitchen, dining and fourseason room, seven elder rooms,
and a loft apartment for the care
partner. Parking for care partners
and additional campus staff is
tucked under the building, hidden from the front, and accessed
from the back where the grade
drops down.
Elders living in the River
Homes will have access to the
LiveWell Center for Resilient
Living that provides additional
opportunities for engagement
and enrichment, as well as the
licensed assisted living care
residence if additional support
needs arise.
