New Memory Care Assisted Living Community will open in 2022
NORWELL — The Cordwainer, a family-owned and operated memory care assisted living community opening in Norwell next summer, has opened a Welcome Center at 124 Washington Street.
The Cordwainer is being developed by Anthemion Senior Lifestyles, which was founded by Bodo and Tamilyn Liesenfeld, who have more than 25 years’ experience in senior living and health care. After several years of researching best practices in memory care, in the United States and Europe, they developed a unique model for caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. They have also assembled an exceptional team trained in dementia care.
The Welcome Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on evenings and weekends by appointment. Refundable reservation deposits are being accepted.
The Cordwainer will include 54 suites for residents and is being developed at 555 Cordwainer Drive. The community will feature unique programming, “The Learned Environment℠,” designed to stimulate the brain and foster learning through music, art and exploring languages. Community amenities will include all-inclusive pricing, spacious living, dining and activity rooms, indoor and outdoor sensory gardens, wood workshop, barbershop and salon, a private suite for families, and performance and rejuvenation centers. Services will include an onsite executive chef, nursing and personal care assistants, wellness programs, laundry and housekeeping, medication management, transportation and more. In addition, the community will have modern technologies to support resident engagement, safety and health.
