New Sykesville facility will serve patients with memory-impairing disorders


July 04, 1993|By Edward Gunts | Edward Gunts,Staff Writer

Operators of the Fairhaven retirement community in Sykesville have begun building a second specialty housing project in the same area, a $17 million complex for people with Alzheimer's disease and other memory-impairing disorders.

Copper Ridge, a 100,000-square-foot facility now under construction on a 14-acre parcel next to Fairhaven, will be the first facility of its kind in the Baltimore-Washington area designed to provide a full continuum of care for people with various forms of dementia, including Alzheimer's disease.

When complete in mid-1994, the low-rise complex will contain 66 comprehensive-care beds, 60 domiciliary-care beds, and an adult day-care center for 25 people. It will also have an assessment clinic for its own residents and others in the surrounding community.

The operator is a subsidiary of Episcopal Ministries to the Aging Inc., the same nonprofit corporation that runs the 12-year-old Fairhaven community.

Perkins, Eastman & Partners of New York City is the architect. Henry H. Lewis Construction Co. is the builder. The project is expected to result in the creation of about 175 jobs.

"Real Estate Financing in the '90s" will be the topic of a breakfast meeting for real estate professionals at 8:30 a.m. July 21 at Piney Orchard Community Center, on Route 170 near Route 175 near Odenton.
