RETIREMENT RESORT

THE MILLER CENTER

WINTER PARK, FL

The Miller Center was designed to serve two separate, but related functions. A portion of the structure was designed to accommodate an Adult Day Care Center licensed for forty participants, most of whom are Alzheimer victims. In addition to divisible specialized activities spaces for each group, a variety of services spaces have been provided, including a clinic, hair salon, personal grooming, and laundry areas. A large, screened porch opens onto a controlled outdoor program area designed for both active and passive activities.

 

Special attention was devoted to preserving a number of large trees on site and the plan configuration was developed to maintain these valuable natural assets. These large trees provide a shade canopy at both entrances and in the outdoor activities area. The character of the building is intentionally residential; partly to fit the neighborhood, but primarily to provide a sense of familiarity to the many cognitively impaired individuals who come to the facility daily. We wanted them to feel like they were visiting someone’s home, rather than going to an institution.

 

The entrance from the parking area is via a beautifully landscaped trellis patio and provides access to the Operations center for the overall facility. A Resource Center is available for the residents seeking information including assistance with on-line research. Offices are equipped with Life Line, an emergency alert service, and the local chapter of the Alzheimer Association.
