Preston Building Rendering

 

Preston at Barclay Friends – Coming in Spring 2020

Barclay Friends has broken ground on an exciting new project. Named Preston after the 19th-century Quaker activist and physician, Ann Preston, the building will be home for 60 new residents and offer Residential Living, Personal Care and Memory Care. Warfel Construction has begun this 61,000 square-foot project designed, in collaboration, by Bernardon and SFCS.

The layout of the new building will afford residents opportunities to enjoy natural light. Residents will have easy access to our gardens where they can spend time outside and plant flowers and vegetables. Two gardens, complete with walking paths, will be built on the grounds to supplement the horticultural therapy program.

Preston will feature new, state-of-the-art amenities. Dedicated spaces, including an art room, library, fitness room and hair salon will enrich residents’ lives. Residents will also have opportunities for rehabilitative therapies through our award-winning program.

Barclay Friends has always had special programming for individuals who suffer from memory loss, and Preston will offer a beautiful new environment to enrich that tradition. Twenty private apartments will be dedicated to residents in need of secure memory support. Located on the first floor, the memory support neighborhood will offer residents assistance while maintaining a sense of autonomy, continuous learning, personal fulfillment and independence. The memory support neighborhood will connect directly to a private garden, where residents can enjoy the natural world in a safe area.
