Res­i­dents in­ter­ested in a closer look at a lo­cal con­struc­tion pro­ject should mark their cal­en­dars for Oct. 19 and Oct. 24.

On the first date, the Elm Ter­race Gardens se­nior liv­ing com­plex in Lans­dale will of­fer tours of a new ad­di­tion, and on the sec­ond will of­fer two pub­lic open houses to de­scribe the mem­ory care ser­vices to be of­fered there.

On Oct. 19 start­ing at 10 a.m., Elm Ter­race staff will host a pre­sen­ta­tion of the new “Dex­dale Suites,” a se­ries of one- and twobed­room apart­ment units that have been un­der con­struc­tion for the last two years. Visitors will be able to see how life in a com­mu­nity like Elm Ter­race gardens can help se­niors lead a worry-free re­tire­ment lifestyle, no mat­ter their health care needs, ac­cord­ing to a com­pany press re­lease.

The fol­low­ing week, at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Oct. 24, Elm Ter­race will of­fer open houses for those who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s dis­ease or other mem­ory loss, show­ing off “As­pire Mem­ory Care,” the new mem­ory care fa­cil­i­ties and lifestyle area. Guests will learn how Elm Ter­race care fa­cil­i­ties can en­rich the lives of res­i­dents in need of mem­ory care, and lunch will be served with the 11 a.m. event and din­ner with the 4 p.m. event.

Elm Ter­race Gardens is lo­cated on Broad Street be­tween Sixth and Sev­enth streets in Lans­dale, and was es­tab­lished in 1981 by mem­bers of the nearby First Bap­tist Church, on the site of what would later be­come Abing­ton Health: Lans­dale Hos­pi­tal. In ad­di­tion to host­ing count­less res­i­dents, the se­nior re­tire­ment and care com­mu­nity has also spon­sored and taken part in nu­mer­ous bor­ough events, serves as a polling place for bor­ough res­i­dents dur­ing elec­tions, and was named the bor­ough’s Busi­ness of the Month in Au­gust 2015.

That same year, in July 2015, Elm Ter­race of­fi­cials broke ground on a 45,000-square-foot ex­pan­sion that had been up for dis­cus­sion since the year be­fore. The ex­pan­sion added 20 in­de­pen­dent-liv­ing apart­ments and 24 mem­ory-sup­port apart­ments for an es­ti­mated $15 mil­lion, and as work has con­tin­ued on that pro­ject, Elm Ter­race has worked with nearby neigh­bors to re­con­fig­ure park­ing on their prop­erty to ad­dress res­i­dent con­cerns.

Dur­ing all of the events, visitors will have time to tour the com­mu­nity, and meet staff and cur­rent res­i­dents.

Any­one in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing is asked to RSVP by call­ing 215-361-5656 or vis­it­ing www.ElmTer­raceGar­dens.org.
