Meridian Senior Living proudly opened its new community, Atrium at Liberty Park, in Cape Coral, Fla. The 130-residence supportive independent, assisted living and memory care completed construction in late October, and in mid-November, it opened its doors to 51 residents who will enjoy a fresh and creative living experience in an impressive, new community.
“We could not be more excited to open the doors at Atrium at Liberty Park,” said Dan Castleberry, Chief Investment Officer for Meridian Senior Living. “It’s been a 4-year-long process to develop a state-of-the-art senior living community here in Cape Coral. We are very proud to bring much-needed professional jobs to the area and a beautiful, amenity-rich home to its residents.”
Atrium at Liberty Park is a total living experience for those seeking senior living services. Great attention was placed on lifestyle and amenities with multiple activity spaces dedicated to resident enjoyment and leisure. For families looking for care for loved ones with dementia, Atrium at Liberty Park will feature Meridian Senior Living’s exclusive MONTESSORI MOMENTS IN TIME™ Memory Care programming.
“This is going to be a gorgeous home to our lucky residents, who will love getting up and getting out each day. From dining to activities to care, we’ve got it all covered,” said Robert Lord, Atrium at Liberty Park Executive Director.
A resident’s journey through the community reveals windows to an unparalleled social lifestyle. There is a card and game room, as well as a clubroom, featuring a billiard table. Creative residents will be drawn to the craft and baking room. Residents seeking an education experience will find computers, a reading room and library. A theater room, featuring a 75-inch TV, provides even more entertainment. Those seeking extra pampering before one of the community’s events need only locate the spa, the beauty salon and barbershop.
The spacious dining room at the community offers a unique dining experience presented by the community’s Executive Chef. Three healthy and mouth-watering meals are served each day, and, for those wanting to share a glass of wine, small bites and conversation, a beautifully designed bistro awaits residents in between mealtimes.
“The Dining Experience is a particularly exciting feature of life at Atrium at Liberty Park,” said Lord. “We believe that gathering together and enjoying a good meal is one of life’s great pleasures. Our very talented Executive Chef will not disappoint.”
Health and wellness are at the core of daily programming. Led by its Life Enrichment Director, the community will feature activities that stimulate the mind, body and soul, including continuing education and exercise classes in the community’s large fitness room complete with weights and cardio equipment.
For those wanting to experience the great Florida outdoors, two creatively designed courtyards await, adorned with fountains, trees, flowers, plenty of seating and room for outdoor activities.
The residences at Atrium at Liberty Park feature multiple floor plans designed to give the resident a feeling of independence and security. There are studio, one-bedrooms and one-bedroom deluxe with two bathrooms available. Each feature a functional kitchenette flowing into a comfortable living area. The bedrooms offer plenty of room for a large bed. The bathroom features an easy-to-walk-in shower, along with two security cords that can alert staff to a problem.
The community was built on the premise that while extra care may be needed, that shouldn’t stop residents from living the great life they deserve. Individualized care is based on what care is needed now and 24-hour nursing ensures there is always someone available to help. In addition, a physician is available, as well as physical and occupational therapy.
Its secure memory care neighborhood features 22 apartments specifically designed for comfort and around-the-clock care of individuals with dementia. Physical and occupational therapy will also be available in memory care, as well as state-of-the-art call and monitoring systems. The beautifully designed dining area and full kitchen complement six daily and healthy meals that encourage valuable socialization. A special touch are small shadow boxes outside of each apartment where photos can be placed of loved ones. Six of the 22 residences are companion suites, allowing for two people to share an apartment.
Meridian’s memory care programming, MONTESSORI MOMENTS IN TIME™, takes a holistic approach to daily interactions, and starts with understanding each resident, their life story and their past and present preferences and habits. At its foundation is a dedication to providing compassionate care, but also active, meaningful programming that stimulates cognition and infuses purpose into the lives of residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.
