About The Cordwainer
The Cordwainer opened in December at 555 Cordwainer Drive in Norwell. The community includes 54 suites for residents living with dementia and features unique and innovative programming, “The Learned Environment℠,” designed to stimulate the brain and foster learning through music, art, and foreign language exploration. The Cordwainer is the first U.S. memory care community to incorporate the Tovertafel, an innovative light projection system created for seniors living with dementia that is proven to be beneficial for physical, cognitive, social, and sensory well-being. Founders Tamilyn and Bodo Liesenfeld researched dementia care in Europe for three years prior to developing the community and incorporating much of what they learned in community design and resident programming.
