Prairie Ridge Care Center

Orange City, Iowa

Prairie Ridge Care Center provides a home and long term care for 83 seniors, consisting of four cottages. Three of the cottages are 24-beds with smaller, residentially-scaled common spaces designed for 12 residents, with living rooms, dining, serving kitchens and porch areas. The fourth cottage is an 11-bed memory care cottage. All resident rooms are private, and each has a private toilet and shower. The cottages are designed for the staff to provide resident-centered care.

The town center serves as the entrance into the campus, connecting all of the cottages. Designed to feel like a park, it has details that replicate area landmarks, reinforcing the park-like design and connection to the community. There is a play area for children and a treat shop in the town center. Family and community members are encouraged to use these spaces creating an intergenerational community on campus.
