The Castlewood offers spacious studios, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments with senior friendly features. All apartments will include “smart design” features where a counter height bar opens into the living area, eliminating the need for a separate dining area. Ample knee space below the bar on both the kitchen and living area sides serves as a dining table for two or a dining area and desk from the living area for sole occupants. Counter height will allow for a resident to easily match a standard 18” to 20” chair. Two-bedrooms will also feature an abundance of closet space, alleviating storage concerns.
Each apartment will feature senior-friendly fixtures, such as walk-in showers with grab bars in the bathroom, and a full kitchen. Refrigerators will be placed atop a wall bridge cabinet to provide additional storage space and elevate the appliance to reduce the need to stoop. Each apartment will be equipped with personal washer and dryer units.
Technology from other Missouri companies, SmartCare and Foresite, will be installed to provide passive monitoring of adverse events such as falls, changes in sleeping behaviors, appliances left on, and presence of water on the floor. Such investment in proactive monitoring will equip all residents and their loved ones to be as proactive as they choose to be about monitoring their care.
