LAFAYETTE, CO — Pinkard Construction Co. has completed Landmark Memory Care Phase One, a new 18-unit memory care facility.

As “The place where our family takes care of yours,” The Landmark Memory Care Community is the brainchild of the Hanson family, a dedicated group of family members, each with a specialty dedicated to the unique needs of memory care residents. The Hanson family, along with their committed staff of memory care specialists, will provide complete memory care services founded on the principle of “creating moments of joy” for residents and their families.

“We are excited to be at a point in construction that allows us to show off this wonderful facility.” stated The Reverend Deborah Hanson, Deacon RN administrator for Landmark Memory Care.

Phase One has been designed for resident comfort, socialization, encouragement and safety. It includes a central park with walking paths for exercise, seating areas for socialization and soaking up the sun, and raised flowerbeds that enable seniors to continue to participate in a favorite pastime, to the specially designed showers in each room to promote safety while bathing, to the carefully placed call bells and wander guard systems.

The community includes a focus on simple acts of kindness such as a smile while eating a freshly baked cookie, or as momentous as enjoying a walk in the community’s central park in the sunshine.

The new memory care consists of the 9,395 square foot Building One, with 18 memory care units in a single-story, wood-framed building. It contains a commercial kitchen, dining room, common areas and lobby.

The project reached substantial completion in early November and opened for residents shortly after.

Pinkard’s value engineering efforts included mechanical system life cycle analysis for a $350,000 savings for owner Hanson Health Holdings, LLC.
