Here are a few highlights about the residences that will be part of Notre Dame Village:

Memory Care “Small Houses”

Notre Dame Village will have three residences designed with unique “small house” concepts (not to be confused with the tiny house trend). Each house provides a natural home setting to 12 individuals. The holistic approach honors each resident’s choices and is meant to give equal weight to all aspects of the holistic person, well beyond merely the physical/medical needs. These residences support individuals who have memory challenges or other cognitive impairment.

Key Features
