Iris Senior Living Announces Acquisition of Dallas Memory Care in Turtle Creek

Private-pay memory care community in Turtle Creek gets new ownership and new management with substantial upgrades to come.

Turtle Creek, Dallas - July 6, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Iris Senior Living is proud to announce that it has just acquired a Dallas memory care community in Turtle Creek, which is now rebranded as Iris Memory Care of Turtle Creek. The intent is to renovate and reposition the community and become the preferred, specialized memory care provider serving all of Dallas, including Uptown, Downtown, Park Cities, North Dallas, Northeast Dallas, East Dallas, Lakewood, Northwest Dallas, and Preston Hollow.

"Memory Care is best done in an intimate, residential environment, contained within one or more single-story structures. It's very rare to come across a single-story building built specifically for seniors in a high-density, urban location such as Turtle Creek. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand our brand into an urban market with a legacy project, and offer a memory-care specialized, residential alternative to the large-scale retirement communities which have a memory care "wing" (often on the 2nd or 3rd floor)." Says the owners of Iris Senior Living.

The Iris model is to provide senior housing services in an intimate setting which offers quality care to its residents that are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia in a residential-like environment where each resident can maximize their health, happiness, and freedom of movement. Memory care provides intensive, long-term care to seniors with Alzheimer's & other types of dementia in a fully staffed and secure environment. Specialized care requires a higher staff to resident ratio and additional training compared to other types of senior living communities to ensure the safety of all the residents.

The business plan is to reposition the community as the preferred, specialized memory care provider by completing a cosmetic renovation bringing the property up-to-date with current design trends and technology. The renovation is anticipated to take six months and will be completed in a strategic manner to minimize operational disturbances and to ensure the comfort of the current residents.

ABOUT IRIS SENIOR LIVING

Iris Memory Care Community is a residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which are normally a "wing" in a much larger community, Iris Memory Care offers specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care in a residential setting. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident's health, happiness, and freedom of movement.

Giant Hawaii telescope to focus on big unknowns of universe

Jul 21, 2019

HONOLULU — Is there life on planets outside our solar system? How did stars and galaxies form in the earliest years of the universe? How do black holes shape galaxies? Scientists are expected to explore those and other fundamental questions about the universe when they peer deep into the night sky using a new telescope planned for the summit of Hawaii's tallest mountain. But the Thirty Meter Telescope is a decade away from being built. And Native Hawaiian protesters have tried to thwart the start of construction by blocking a road to the mountain. They say installing yet another observatory...

Trump: Administration to review Pentagon computer contract

Jul 21, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says the administration will "take a very long look" at a massive multibillion-dollar contract the Pentagon is about to award for a cloud computing system. Amazon Web Services Inc., a division of Amazon, and Microsoft Corp. are finalists for the contract estimated to be worth as much as $10 billion over a decade. Trump says Thursday at the White House that he's been hearing "tremendous complaints" from other companies that the contract was not competitively bid, among other issues. Some Republican lawmakers also took their concerns about the Pentagon's handling of the contract directly to...

A healthy lifestyle may offset genetic risk for Alzheimer's

Jul 21, 2019

LOS ANGELES — A healthy lifestyle can cut your risk of developing Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia even if you have genes that raise your risk for these mind-destroying diseases, a large study has found. People with high genetic risk and poor health habits were about three times more likely to develop dementia versus those with low genetic risk and good habits, researchers reported Sunday. Regardless of how much genetic risk someone had, a good diet, adequate exercise, limiting alcohol and not smoking made dementia less likely. "I consider that good news," said John Haaga of the U.S. National...

AP Exclusive: New election systems use vulnerable software

Jul 21, 2019

WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania's message was clear: The state was taking a big step to keep its elections from being hacked in 2020. Last April, its top election official told counties they had to update their systems. So far, nearly 60% have taken action, with $14.15 million of mostly federal funds helping counties buy brand-new electoral systems. But there's a problem: Many of these new systems still run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers. An Associated Press analysis has found that like many counties in Pennsylvania, the vast majority of 10,000 election jurisdictions nationwide...

NEW YORK — Volkswagen will invest $2.6 billion into a Pittsburgh autonomous vehicle company that's mostly owned by Ford as the automakers who were once rivals deepen their partnership to develop driverless and electric vehicles in an ultra-competitive landscape. The two automakers will become equal owners of Argo AI, and they plan to put autonomous vehicles on the roads in the U.S. and Europe as early as 2021, the companies said Friday. The deal also includes a plan for Ford to use VW's electric vehicle platform to build zero-emissions cars for the European market starting in 2023. Auto companies have...
