WE PROMOTE A SENSE OF BELONGING
Another design feature found at The Echelon is the unique neighborhood décor. Each residential house has a specific and distinctive color palette and theme. These neighborhoods enhance familiarity, comfort and belonging.
The Echelon is designed with natural lighted areas. Large airy windows in our dining rooms, lend a bright and cheery mood to the residence, this has been demonstrated to reduce anxiety among residents by providing a natural gradual transition into evening along with our auto-dim lighting. By minimizing the stress of “sundowning,” our members enjoy a calmer and more reassuring environment.
The dining areas at Echelon are designed to encourage family and belonging. Families are always encouraged to join their loved one during dining times. We believe that mealtimes should not simply nourish the body but should nourish the spirit as well.
A MEMORY CARE THAT IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR MEMORY CARE
Echelon believes that in order to provide the best memory care living for our members we needed to design a community from the ground up that specifically provides an environment that would assure their comfort and safety.
Unlike many other memory care residences, Echelon enables it’s residents to wander freely and safely within our safe and protected outdoor patios, courtyards and houses. There are no locked doors in our safe memory care areas, only in adverse weather do we lock doors. Our residents can come in and out of their living areas, just as they would in any living areas of their own home. This helps to minimize frustrations and enhances a connection to their home. This is all specifically designed.
