The Villas

 

The Villas is a unique, 108-bed Assisted Living and Memory Care Small House model in the northeastern area of Tallahassee, FL. Developed and operated locally by a local developer, the Villas will have 9 small houses 7,000 SF each and 1 admin 3,400 SF, which is a departure from the traditional larger household model assisted living facilities. This new model for assisted living is part of a “small house movement” in long-term care based on the creation of a neighborhood of homes designed for 12 persons each. This model de-institutionalizes care by providing a home, not a facility. It redefines the methods of delivering personalized, professional care and staffing patterns that are necessary to improve each individual’s quality of care and quality of life.  The site will be landscaped to give the each house access to a central outdoor activity and therapeutic space to enable residents a park-like area to enjoy the outdoors.  Residents will have access to a central living, dining, and a home like kitchen space within each Villa. The neighborhood is designed as a private gated community where residents can visit each village at their leisure without restrictions. Every aspect of the campus is accessible, senior friendly, and home-like. The beautiful villas are a far departure from traditional, institutional styled assisted living architecture commonly found today.
