Iris Senior Living Announces Acquisition of Dallas Memory Care in Turtle Creek

Private-pay memory care community in Turtle Creek gets new ownership and new management with substantial upgrades to come.

Turtle Creek, Dallas - July 6, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Iris Senior Living is proud to announce that it has just acquired a Dallas memory care community in Turtle Creek, which is now rebranded as Iris Memory Care of Turtle Creek. The intent is to renovate and reposition the community and become the preferred, specialized memory care provider serving all of Dallas, including Uptown, Downtown, Park Cities, North Dallas, Northeast Dallas, East Dallas, Lakewood, Northwest Dallas, and Preston Hollow.

"Memory Care is best done in an intimate, residential environment, contained within one or more single-story structures. It's very rare to come across a single-story building built specifically for seniors in a high-density, urban location such as Turtle Creek. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand our brand into an urban market with a legacy project, and offer a memory-care specialized, residential alternative to the large-scale retirement communities which have a memory care "wing" (often on the 2nd or 3rd floor)." Says the owners of Iris Senior Living.

The Iris model is to provide senior housing services in an intimate setting which offers quality care to its residents that are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia in a residential-like environment where each resident can maximize their health, happiness, and freedom of movement. Memory care provides intensive, long-term care to seniors with Alzheimer's & other types of dementia in a fully staffed and secure environment. Specialized care requires a higher staff to resident ratio and additional training compared to other types of senior living communities to ensure the safety of all the residents.

The business plan is to reposition the community as the preferred, specialized memory care provider by completing a cosmetic renovation bringing the property up-to-date with current design trends and technology. The renovation is anticipated to take six months and will be completed in a strategic manner to minimize operational disturbances and to ensure the comfort of the current residents.

ABOUT IRIS SENIOR LIVING

Iris Memory Care Community is a residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which are normally a "wing" in a much larger community, Iris Memory Care offers specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care in a residential setting. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident's health, happiness, and freedom of movement.
