CONTEMPORARY DESIGNS TAKE SENIOR LIVING TO THE NEXT LEVEL


Digital Memory Boxes The Ridge


Remember the traditional memory box cabinets outside of resi- dent rooms? The Ridge in Salt Lake City updates the idea with digital memory boxes using the latest technology. A digital frame is installed on the wall outside each residence.


The frame functions as a piece of art as well as a way to highlight personal information about the resident. The family, resident, or care staff can upload photos to the frame of the resident’s grandchildren, favorite vacation spot, pets, or anything else. “It’s something unique for each resident,” said Shauna Revo, project design manager at studioSIX5.


Technology was incorporated into all elements of the build- ing. The furniture is tech-enabled with plugs and outlets to ac- commodate phone chargers and tablets. The memory care sec- tion includes a Ketra lighting system with LED light bulbs that can be controlled by the staff.


The system synchronizes the light bulbs to mimic circadian rhythms of light patterns that shift in color and intensity through- out the day. This provides changing natural light levels that can impact the residents’ natural 24-hour cycles and encourage bet- ter sleep patterns. “We felt this was important for memory care residents who don’t go outside as often and need exposure to more natural light,” said Revo.
