ProHealth Regency Senior Communities announces the addition of a 7,437 square foot memory care wing at its Brookfield campus. The 11-unit wing, which opened in April, has expanded Regency’s offerings to support seniors with memory loss or dementia, allowing them to age in place.
Regency Chief Operating Officer Elizabeth Brzeski says she is excited to see this new chapter in Regency’s history come to life. “We are thrilled to support the growing need for memory care in the local community. As a non-profit, we are driven to serve others, and it’s our mission to provide a superior quality of life to our residents. This addition enables seniors to remain within their established community and still receive the care they need no matter how that may change in the future.”
Each unit in the new wing is spacious, with large private bathrooms that have walk-in showers and other safety features. Residents will have the opportunity to join events and activities in a welcoming common area complete with full kitchen and dining room. A large enclosed outdoor courtyard adds a home-like touch to the community.
