Construction of Memory Care Neighborhood at Overlook Green Senior Living Community Begins

WHITEHALL, PA – Five Star Senior Living, one of the nation’s leading senior living and healthcare services providers, announced that they will begin breaking ground on construction of a new Memory Care neighborhood this week at Overlook Green Senior Living in Whitehall, PA just outside of Pittsburgh.

Five Star’s Bridge to Rediscovery program is an industry leader in memory care, designed specifically to meet the needs of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The award-winning program caters to the distinct capabilities, interests and favorite activities of each resident while encouraging family involvement every step of the way.

“The Bridge to Rediscovery program has reinvented memory care through a Montessori-based approach to dementia programming,” said Scott Herzig, Five Star’s Chief Operating Officer. “It focuses on leveraging the individual strengths and personal history of each resident to retain and build on existing skills. Our residents receive individualized attention, giving them the best chance at success and happiness for themselves, as well as their loved ones.”

The renovation, which is designed to maximize natural light via sky-lights, features fifteen modernized private and semi-private suites, large custom designed common areas, a world-class spa, family-style dining, and a beautifully landscaped secure outdoor garden with walking paths. Five Star anticipates construction to be completed in the first quarter of 2018.
