In addition to offering assisted living, memory care, post-acute rehabilitation, and nursing care, Ashby Ponds new continuing care neighborhood will feature multiple patios and a courtyard so residents can spend time outdoors in a beautiful setting. Each assisted living floor will have a balcony overlooking the courtyard. There will be a sensory garden area within Memory Care, located on the fourth floor. Residents will enjoy therapeutic programs and activities outdoors in a safe and comfortable environment. It s important for our residents to spend time out-of-doors, says Amy Grossman, director of continuing care at Ashby Ponds. Being outside and having contact with nature offers physical and emotional benefits, thus enhancing quality of life.
