The custom building layout compliments the design context of the surrounding neighborhood, while the exterior nods to the farmhouse heritage of the site. Tucked into the stair, the receptionist welcomes visitors and residents alike. Accents continue the farm theme.

The Assisted Living sunroom draws natural light into the community.

The multi-use Lobby and Bistro space, leading to the Rathskeller, provides a casual location for a cup of coffee or afternoon drink with a friend.

The Memory Care Living Area shares its natural light with the adjacent residents’ rooms through the cut wood screen. Warm furnishings, the fireplace, and memory stations create a multi-use space that speaks to its residents.

In the dining room, superb meals are offered in a casual, yet elegant environment to ensure resident interest and comfort. Large windows overlook the patio to encourage outdoor dining when weather permits.

For resident dining pleasure, there is access to a garden level Bistro for casual dining and a beautiful restaurant with historic rustic feel of aged brick and high-gloss for more formal dining. The Bistro offers exterior dining at the front lobby, interior casual dining and snacks at the reception area, and the quiet Rathskeller space for conversation.

Memory Care dining, offering both counter and table service options, is anchored by the country kitchen and overlooks the sunny courtyard. The kitchen continues the farmhouse aesthetic and allows vicarious participation in meal prep, as well as important social interactions with staff.

Assisted living suites combine the privacy of individual apartments with access to shared amenities and services. Residents have their own living spaces but also enjoy common areas for meals and activities. A kitchenette, refrigerator, sink and microwave gives residents the option to prepare light meals if they wish. Personal residences at Fitz Farm deliver spacious private studio, one- and two-bedroom layouts designed to balance independence with a supportive living environment to enjoy a more carefree lifestyle.

Designed to provide comprehensive benefits for a wide range of older adults’ abilities, the age-friendly gym is open for individual and group exercise routines to maintain a positive approach to daily life. Its location next to the therapy area creates a wellness suite. And after a good workout, the nearby Bistro is the place to socialize. Stylish and functional, the theater-media room is equipped with acoustic considerations, LED system, and video components. Its movable furniture creates a multi-purpose space that can be used for speakers, events, and parties.
