State-Of-The-Art Alzheimer’s And Memory Care Center, The Harbor At Legacy Village of Cleveland, To Open In The Fall

Thursday, July 5, 2018

Legacy Village of Cleveland announced that construction of The Harbor, a 20,000-square foot Alzheimer’s and memory care facility, is nearing completion with opening scheduled for fall 2018 alongside the 39-bed assisted living facility at 2255 Candies Lane.

The Harbor concept was developed after years of research and planning with notable experts in the field of memory loss.  The overall theme, design, colors, furniture, and common areas all reflect a 1950’s era to remind residents of happier times.  The apartment suites are configured especially for those suffering with memory loss. A series of local and nationally recognized artwork will be located throughout The Harbor to compliment the 1950’s color palate that was used during that period.

The Harbor at Legacy Village of Cleveland will feature a state-of-the-art technology and non-drug therapy program called SimpleC, a leader in memory stimulation technology, that uses treatments such as music, trusted voice, and reminiscence time and place therapies. This is delivered by use of a touch screen tablet used to soothe those affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia related disorders.  SimpleC is the result of years of study and development with top-tiered research institutions including the Copper Ridge Institute, Emory University, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State.  Other cutting-edge features will include an interior lighting system called circadian rhythm, heat welded flooring, and a Town Theatre complete with a 65-inch flat screen and premier sound system for residents’ enjoyment.

“Everything about The Harbor is done with the intention of enhancing the memory care treatment and helping those suffering from memory loss to continue living a full life with purpose and joy. The state-of-the- art technology will play a huge part in the delivery of service, care, and life enrichment,” said Shannon Alvey, executive director for Legacy Village of Cleveland.

One of the additional services offered at The Harbor includes a nationally recognized activity program called the Purposeful Day™ Program. This comprehensive program will cater to each resident through an individual service plan designed to meet each resident’s physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual needs every day. 

“It’s an honor to provide this groundbreaking technology and specialized level of care and service to the families in Cleveland and Bradley County. The Harbor at Legacy Village of Cleveland will enable us to continue to fulfill our mission, which is to serve the greatest generation with honor, respect, faith, and integrity,” said Bryan Cook, chief operations officer of Legacy Senior Living, management company of Legacy Village of Cleveland.
