Angie McClure and Michelle Milcoff from The Views Senior Living of Marion

The Views is a locally owned and manged, one of a kind memory care facility. Of the three new senior living facilities about to be built in the area, this is the only one with the full continuum of memory care. The new facility, The Views, takes the concept of a memory facility with a town inside it to a whole new level. This will be the first WELL registered memory care facility in the nation. This national certification ensures that the facility meets wellness standards in six different areas. It will include one and two bedroom apartments, a skilled nursing unite with private rooms, and the memory unit with the town inside. The town will include a coffee shop, movie theater, nursing unite/health clinic, and salon. There will also be walking trails and lots of green space for residents to enjoy.
