Best memory care housing designs for Global Awards shortlisted

LONDON: The shortlist for the best memory care housing design has been declared.

Over 250 designs have been considered by the awards secretariat. One of the finalists in this category is shown above.

HonourKind Properties has announced that it will be moving forward with a site-plan application to build a state-of-the-art, family-scale 42-unit memory-care home for seniors facing cognitive challenges on the south property of The Elden of Bradford and St. John’s Presbyterian Church lands.

“We are thrilled and very excited to launch this important project, which focuses on an intimate, friendly environment for seniors who are facing cognitive challenges like Alzheimer’s to get the care and support they need in Bradford,” said Dale Beasse, president of HonourKind. “Our team consists of experienced, caring individuals whose passion is to address the growing needs of our seniors to access housing and support.”

“The Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury has worked diligently to attract seniors housing projects, whether retirement homes, bungalows, apartments or condos,” said Mayor Rob Keffer. “This new memory-care home will be a fantastic contribution to ensuring seniors can get the housing and support they need to continue to age in our community.”

“It’s great news that a new home for seniors with memory challenges is coming to our town. We’re thrilled to launch this new model and for the new jobs that will be created,” said Deputy Mayor James Leduc.

The 42-unit project will be moving forward with a site-plan application in the near future. HonourKind Properties is run by the team that delivered The Elden, and seeks to be the inspiration for integrity, kindness and innovation in quality cognitive care.

The Global Award winner will be announced in December in London. (Globals)
