Come and See What Wartburg Has to Offer! 

Household Living

Unlike traditional assisted living facilities, we have embraced the household model to provide an intimate and homely atmosphere for our residents. Each household boasts its own living, dining, and kitchen spaces, creating a sense of familiarity and warmth. Smaller gathering spaces and sunrooms offer cozy corners to connect with friends and family, fostering meaningful relationships and cherished moments.

Abundant Natural Light

Our commitment to promoting well-being and happiness extends to the design of our facility. Large windows grace each room, bathing the entire space in natural light. Studies have shown that natural light positively impacts mood, sleep patterns, and overall cognitive function, making it an integral part of our residents' everyday lives.

Purpose-Built for Memory Care

Unlike many other facilities that may retrofit or adapt existing spaces, Berkemeier Living Center was meticulously designed and purpose-built from the ground up. Every aspect of our facility has been carefully crafted to cater to the unique needs of our residents. This thoughtful approach ensures an environment that enhances safety, comfort, and overall well-being.

The building will be LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified by the U.S. Green Building Council. Attaining LEED certification signifies that a building is exemplary in conserving energy, lowering operating costs and being healthy for occupants.

Enriching Experiences:

Life at Berkemeier Living Center goes beyond standard care; it's about enriching experiences that enhance quality of life. Our first floor houses a dedicated event space where residents can partake in various activities and engage with one another. Additionally, our music therapy room offers a therapeutic outlet, harnessing the power of melody to soothe and stimulate the mind.

Serenity Garden

Nature plays a pivotal role in our residents' daily experiences. Our outdoor space features a serene garden, thoughtfully designed to provide a calming retreat. Equipped with numerous safety features, this garden offers a secure area for residents to enjoy the beauty of nature, partake in outdoor activities, and take leisurely strolls.

The Institute for Music and Neurologic Function

Wartburg is the only adult care community with the added benefit of being home to the Institute for Music and Neurologic Function (INMF).

IMNF is an internationally recognized non-profit agency engaging in research, education, and training and offering groundbreaking music therapy programs to restore, maintain, and improve patients’ physical, emotional, and neurological function through the methodical use of music.

This therapy assists in the “awakening and healing” of individuals with a wide range of neurological conditions including strokes, trauma, dementia, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease.

Residents at Berkemeier Living Center will have access to regularly scheduled music therapy programs.

Collaboration is key, and our memory care team is dedicated to maintaining communication with our families to help build understanding and to best care for our residents.
