Alzheimer's disease and dementia are two growing epidemics, affecting more than 5.5 million Americans. With a growing population receiving this incurable diagnosis it is evident that there is a significant need for facilities that specialize in memory care. Westminster Village is a well-known long-term care community within the Wabash Valley, the implementation of a memory care unit will be a valuable addition to the high quality of care they currently provide. Within this project several components are discussed in regards to this futuristic structure; focusing on the specifics of caring for and providing for individuals with this appalling disease. Researchable variables within this project include the measurements of events, ideas, and costs to convert Westminster Village's existing services into a more enhanced quality of care; a secured memory care community.
