Recollections, Avalon at Bedford Square

Placentia, California

Thoughtful architecture can make a significant difference in the lives of people with Alzheimer’s. IPA imagined Recollections as a prosthetic environment, with memory support and way-finding aids built into a friendly, homelike design. In place of the traditional model, where resident rooms are arrayed along a double-loaded hallway, the private residences at Avalon are clustered around a great room. Simply by opening one’s door, the resident is greeted by the familiar comforts of a living room, dining area and kitchen, all within view. Throughout the secure and supervised facility, residents enjoy views of an inviting courtyard, a center of focus that helps orient them to their location. Charting, administration and a small warming kitchen are all located behind the scenes.
