Terraces of Los Gatos Memory Services and Assisted Living  |  Los Gatos, California

The Terraces of Los Gatos, a Continuing Care Retirement Community, asked Boulder Associates to add much-needed memory care services to its California campus and to augment their existing assisted living residences with new one-bedroom apartments. With a 20,000 s.f. addition, the campus now meets market demand by offering four levels of care: independent housing, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing.

In addressing the residents’ needs on the thirty-year-old campus, a new two-story addition was created, replacing a parking lot. “The Grove”, a household located on the first floor, provides memory services to sixteen residents. “The Lodge," on the second floor, adds ten one-bedroom apartments to the existing supply of assisted living studio apartments.

The first floor addition is designed to improve the quality of life for residents by creating an environment that offers familiar settings and helps staff create a true household. Sixteen bedrooms with private bathrooms surround the community living areas that include:

• Family room with fireplace that opens to a garden patio
• Centralized living room with comfortable seating
• Kitchen accessible to residents with extra seating
• Open dining room where residents enjoy home-cooked meals
• Laundry, crafts, and bathing spa
