Fred­er­ick Liv­ing con­tin­u­ing care re­tire­ment com­mu­nity will celebrate the ground­break­ing of its Mead­ows ex­pan­sion pro­ject on June 30 at 10 a.m. Media are in­vited to pho­to­graph the cer­e­mo­nial event.

Fred­er­ick Liv­ing Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer John Hen­drick­son will be joined by rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the pro­ject’s part­ners, Bar­ton Part­ners, RGS As­so­ci­ates, Wag­man Con­struc­tion and Univest Bank and Trust Co.

“We are ea­ger to be­gin this unique and im­por­tant ex­pan­sion to our cam­pus, which puts Fred­er­ick Liv­ing at the fore­front of se­nior liv­ing de­sign trends,” Hen­drick­son said.

The Mead­ows is an in­no­va­tive de­sign based on the “pocket neigh­bor­hood” con­cept that is gain­ing pop­u­lar­ity among ar­chi­tec­tural pioneers. This de­sign sup­ports a grow­ing num­ber of stud­ies show­ing that greater so­cial en­gage­ment and in­tel­lec­tual stim­u­la­tion aids men­tal and emo­tional well­ness, and even trans­lates into longer life­spans.

In “pocket neigh­bor­hoods” small group­ings of houses around a court­yard or com­mon gar­den pro­mote a greater sense of com­mu­nity and pro­vide more op­por­tu­ni­ties for so­cial in­ter­ac­tion than the con­tem­po­rary de­vel­op­ments that pop­u­late most sub­urbs.

Phase 1 of The Mead­ows will fea­ture a 20 cot­tages , each clus­tered around and fac­ing a com­mon green space. Spa­cious front porches bor­dered by small, pri­vate gar­dens open­ing onto the com­mon area en­cour­age home­own­ers to visit and gather with neigh­bors.
