DILWORTH—An assisted living center here will open a new memory care building next year.

Serenity Assisted Living and Memory Care, 1125 Oakview Drive, announced late last week that construction will start in the late fall to build a new memory care expansion.

The new 11,800-square-foot building, 1251 3rd Ave. N.W., is expected to open in the spring. It will be connected by a pedestrian bridge to the two other buildings on the Dilworth campus.

A news release said the facility is designed for people with memory loss, with features such as LED lighting that can alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer's disease by adjusting the circadian rhythm of clients and technology that can detect falls and provide GPS monitoring of staff and residents.

The building will feature 12 private apartments with their own bathrooms, in addition to amenities such as a hotel room for visiting relatives, a mezzanine for training and support groups, and a sunroom that leads to a patio and enclosed garden with a walking area.
