Terracina Grand, a premier senior living community, today announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for its new two-story memory care community will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014, adjacent to the existing property, near the corner of Davis Boulevard and County Barn Road in Naples.
To commemorate the groundbreaking expansion of memory care at Terracina Grand, all event attendees will have a $25 donation made in their name to the Alzheimer's Support Network of Naples.
The Terracina Grand groundbreaking team at the ceremony will include Collier County Commissioner Donna Fiala; John Goodman, chairman, The Goodman Group; Craig Edinger, vice president, Senior Living & Health Care, The Goodman Group, and Peter Hendrickson, executive director, Terracina Grand.
The event will include a historical timeline display on the journey and history of memory care in the United States since 1935. The Goodman Group, the development and management company for Terracina Grand, and a noted leader in memory care for nearly 50 years, helped revolutionize senior residential development and care.
The new memory care community at Terracina Grand will provide residents a self-contained environment and operate utilizing the Pearls of Life® philosophy, an award-winning, national dementia program which provides personalized care plans.
The free-standing memory care community will add 55 Alzheimer's and dementia care apartments for 60 residents, more than doubling Terracina Grand's capacity to care for seniors in the Naples area in need of memory care. The residential units are on average 25 percent larger than the industry norm. The Goodman Group expects the new memory care community to add up to 80 new jobs at Terracina Grand.
The memory care community will include hospitality features and services such as a family style dining area and club lounge on each floor, a grand living room with library, a large orangery (conservatory).
