WASHINGTON, — Renovations are officially underway at The Residences at Thomas Circle, a premier Senior Lifestyle living community located in downtown D.C. The community provides a variety of enjoyable lifestyle options for senior residents, including independent living, assisted living, and memory care.
To be completed spring 2021, the renovations will bring new life to several common areas of The Residences of Thomas Circle by adding a modern look to their memory care neighborhood, which serves residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
The renovations will include a multi-purpose activity room, a living room, a den/library, and a main and private dining room. All of the renewed spaces will offer a warm, comforting, and neutral color palette with a contemporary twist and provide areas for current and future residents and their families to visit and enjoy time together. The rooms will incorporate rich and luxurious textures with sophisticated wooden furniture, plush seating and drapery, and contemporary artwork and lighting to create fresh and rejuvenated spaces for residents to feel at home and continue their activities while still receiving the care and services they need.
“The Residences at Thomas Circle has long seen the need to serve memory care residents in the District of Columbia. We now have an incredible space which will help these residents to benefit from needs-based amenities and greater socialization,” says Sena Quist, Executive Director of the Residences of Thomas Circle. “The additions focus on lifestyle stations designed to serve the needs of residents with dementia and memory-related loss. With team members trained as Certified Dementia Practitioners, we are proud to have a team who will help create an environment to ensure current and future residents live with dignity and the highest quality of care.”
The Residences at Thomas Circle renovations also include the expansion of the Memory Care neighborhood with 17 new apartment homes. Memory Care neighborhood residents benefit from Senior Lifestyle’s award-winning memory program, embrace Memory Care, which was created to assist residents living with dementia or Alzheimer’s to find more joy and connection in their lives.

This program supports family members and friends in creating more meaning and connection in their visits through innovative programs and guided interactions. By building additional fully-furnished apartment homes, The Residence at Thomas Circle will be able to provide care for more seniors and their loved ones.
