Lowell, MA – DiGiorgio Associates Inc. (DAI) recently completed the design of new affordable housing with supportive services and assisted living for early memory loss residence for D’Youville Life & Wellness Community in Lowell.
This facility will provide an affordable and comfortable option for the city and its surrounding communities through the continuum of care provided. In addition to the services of the new facility, D’Youville offers nursing home care, adult day healthcare, rehabilitation (for post-operative and other medical conditions), independent living, and hospice care.
DAI worked with D’Youville to develop programming requirements for its new facility. Supportive housing resident amenities include a café, activity space, wellness center, chapel, fitness room, hair salon, dining room, and patio with serene views of the wetlands.
The memory care residence will have secured access and will contain 15 studio units with amenities such as dining, activity kitchen, family living room, reading, games/art, and sunroom. These residents will have access to a private and secure outdoor garden space.
Family and visitors are welcome to join residents for activities and dining, with access to a private room available for family functions.
Construction began in August 2014 and is expected to be complete in fall 2015.
DAI also recently completed the design of a nonresidential senior services center on the campus. Construction on this project will begin April 2015.
