Minnesota Veterans Home

Fergus Falls, Minnesota

This new building contains a 21-bed special care unit (SCU), serving the residents who have an Alzheimer’s/dementia diagnosis. The SCU provides bedroom accommodations surrounding an activities area in the center of the building. This project has several components: 

  • SCU with a 10 and an 11-resident household with shared support services. Interiors of the households are designed with an exterior village feel. To help provide memory cues to residents with dementia, the door to each resident’s private room is designed to look like the front door and entry to a house. 
  • The dining and activities area provides a contiguous activities space, all of which can be opened up for large groups. 
  • The relocation of the existing Community-Based Outreach Clinic (CBOC), opening additional town center spaces and space needed for therapy.

This project is roughly 72,000 GSF.
