Iris Senior Living Announces Acquisition of Dallas Memory Care in Turtle Creek

Private-pay memory care community in Turtle Creek gets new ownership and new management with substantial upgrades to come.

Turtle Creek, Dallas - July 6, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

Iris Senior Living is proud to announce that it has just acquired a Dallas memory care community in Turtle Creek, which is now rebranded as Iris Memory Care of Turtle Creek. The intent is to renovate and reposition the community and become the preferred, specialized memory care provider serving all of Dallas, including Uptown, Downtown, Park Cities, North Dallas, Northeast Dallas, East Dallas, Lakewood, Northwest Dallas, and Preston Hollow.

"Memory Care is best done in an intimate, residential environment, contained within one or more single-story structures. It's very rare to come across a single-story building built specifically for seniors in a high-density, urban location such as Turtle Creek. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to expand our brand into an urban market with a legacy project, and offer a memory-care specialized, residential alternative to the large-scale retirement communities which have a memory care "wing" (often on the 2nd or 3rd floor)." Says the owners of Iris Senior Living.

The Iris model is to provide senior housing services in an intimate setting which offers quality care to its residents that are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia in a residential-like environment where each resident can maximize their health, happiness, and freedom of movement. Memory care provides intensive, long-term care to seniors with Alzheimer's & other types of dementia in a fully staffed and secure environment. Specialized care requires a higher staff to resident ratio and additional training compared to other types of senior living communities to ensure the safety of all the residents.

The business plan is to reposition the community as the preferred, specialized memory care provider by completing a cosmetic renovation bringing the property up-to-date with current design trends and technology. The renovation is anticipated to take six months and will be completed in a strategic manner to minimize operational disturbances and to ensure the comfort of the current residents.

ABOUT IRIS SENIOR LIVING

Iris Memory Care Community is a residential alternative to traditional assisted living. Unlike other Memory Care communities which are normally a "wing" in a much larger community, Iris Memory Care offers specialized Alzheimer's and dementia care in a residential setting. Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident's health, happiness, and freedom of movement.

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jul 22, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...

Boeing 737 Max 8 woes crimp Asian airlines' growth plans

Jul 22, 2019

SINGAPORE — Asian airlines are cutting routes, revamping their schedules and leasing extra aircraft to fill gaps left by the grounding of Boeing 737 Max 8s after deadly crashes in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. So far, regional carriers have managed to avoid major disruptions, but analysts expect that idling the Max 8s, a fuel-efficient update of Boeing's popular 737, will crimp growth plans in the near future. As investigations into the crashes continue, Boeing anticipates a $1 billion increase in costs related to the 737 Max, including fixing software implicated in the disasters, adding pilot training and compensating...

Far from glitzy tech hubs, Chinese city bets big on VR

Jul 22, 2019

NANCHANG, China — Liu Zixing craned his neck forward for help with fastening the goggles for his first ever taste of virtual reality. He took a break from the mining ore business to travel to a VR theme park in this Chinese provincial capital not known for high technology. "It feels like reality," Liu said after shooting down robots in a virtual fighter jet, strapped to a spinning gyroscope lit in purple. "It's just like you're riding in a plane." Enthusiasm for VR has cooled somewhat after years of hype, but China's leaders are trying to drum up excitement, hoping...
