Expansion of dementia care facility Livewell underway in Southington

Construction is underway at Livewell on an expansion that will add more buildings and more capabilities to the dementia care facility on South Main Street. Dorm-style housing will allow community living for dementia patients as well as family members. The resilient living center will offer classes, screenings and help for Livewell residents as well as those who live elsewhere. After the buildings are completed next year, the facility’s existing buildings will be renovated. The nonprofit group was formerly known as the Alzheimer’s Resource Center. The buildings under construction are designed to imitate four single family homes in a New England style. Each will have four two-bedroom apartments and a third floor apartment for a non-patient resident, such as an occupational therapy student.
