Five Star Senior Living Begins Construction of Memory Care Neighborhood at Overlook Green Senior Living Community

NEWTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Five Star Senior Living (Nasdaq: FVE), one of the nation’s leading
senior living and healthcare services providers, announced today that
they will begin breaking ground on construction of a new Memory Care
neighborhood this week at Overlook Green Senior Living in Whitehall, PA
just outside of Pittsburgh. Five Star’s Bridge to Rediscovery program is
an industry leader in memory care, designed specifically to meet the
needs of those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The
award-winning program caters to the distinct capabilities, interests and
favorite activities of each resident while encouraging family
involvement every step of the way.

The Bridge to Rediscovery program has reinvented memory care through a
Montessori-based approach to dementia programming,” said Scott Herzig,
Five Star’s Chief Operating Officer. “It focuses on leveraging the
individual strengths and personal history of each resident to retain and
build on existing skills. Our residents receive individualized
attention, giving them the best chance at success and happiness for
themselves, as well as their loved ones.”

The renovation, which is designed to maximize natural light via
sky-lights, features fifteen modernized private and semi-private suites,
large custom designed common areas, a world-class spa, family-style
dining, and a beautifully landscaped secure outdoor garden with walking
paths. Five Star anticipates construction to be completed in the first
quarter of 2018.
