An Inside Tour of Franklin Park Round Rock

An Inside Tour of Franklin Park1

Franklin Park – an assisted living and memory care community – officially changes the landscape and broadens the scope of the Teravista residential community when they open this March 2017. Franklin Park Executive Director and Teravista resident Alicia Del Rosario and Sales & Marketing Director Maricela Davidson took us on an exclusive tour and sneak peek of the 76,000 square foot facility in anticipation of their official open this March.

Facility Features
The state-of-the-art facility offers a total of 76 apartments, comprised of 36 assisted living, 15 mild memory care and 25 memory care apartments. This allows residents the option to “age in place” without having to move facilities as they age.

The 36 assisted living apartments offer 3 different floor plans for residents who benefit from an onsite 24-hour medical care staff. Ranging from studios to 1 bed/1 bath to 2 bed/2 bath apartments, assisted living apartments feature spacious and modern amenities including a kitchenette with refrigerator, microwave and plenty of counter and cabinet space. Flooring options consist of durable vinyl wood plank, tile and carpet and each room is wired for phone, television and Internet.

Adjacent to the assisted living area are 15 mild memory care apartments, also known as the “bridge”. Unique to Franklin Park, the bridge apartments offer mild memory care for residents who benefit from person-centered care from licensed staff skilled in the treatment of dementia-related diseases. Mild memory residents are physically able to do many tasks and activities independently but may need some redirection and reminders. “Wander-guard” bracelets are available for loved ones who may be at-risk for exit-seeking and the bracelet will trigger an alarm if they exit the building. Floor plans and features are similar to assisted living apartments and include a designated outdoor courtyard, dining room, living space and pantry.

The remaining 25 apartments of the Franklin Park community are specially catered for memory care residents who have limited mobility and require more hands-on care. Each studio apartment comes equipped with a call button and motion detecting sensor system. The memory care wing has secured access to the adjacent assisted living and bridge areas and also features their own restaurant-style dining area, pantry, living area, enclosed outdoor courtyard and residents-choice activities.

Amenities and Activities
As you arrive the Franklin Park community, you’ll be greeted by a stylish and sophisticated exterior setting, complete with a porte-cochere and high-arched doorways.  The main entrance showcases modern décor with high ceilings, exposed beams and bright open living spaces. The amenities within Franklin Park are impressive and include a concierge, private spaces for family gatherings, a full-service nail and hair salon, country store, theatre room, fitness and wellness rooms, arts and crafts room, laundry rooms, dog park and the largest commercial kitchen among the Franklin Company properties. A Life Enrichment Director manages the activity calendar and outings as well as the overall entertainment program for the community.

Care Staff
Perhaps the most significant factor when considering a senior living community for your loved one is the quality of care available to them. The staff-to-resident ratio in the assisted living section of the community is 1:10 while the ratio for the mild memory and memory care residences is between 1:13 to 1:16. Franklin Park is rated a Type B facility, meaning they have a higher level of acuity and are able to give both physical and cognitive assistance to their residents to vacate the building in the case of an emergency.

Currently, Franklin Park is fully staffed with a highly skilled nursing and administrative staff including a Director of Nursing. Residents have the opportunity to choose from 4 primary care physicians who conduct monthly visits to their Franklin Park patients and are available on-call. The physician and Nursing Director are also able to place orders for radiology and lab work which can be conducted onsite. Residents have the option to maintain their current physician, in which case a Franklin Park shuttle bus or van is able to transport them to appointments. In addition, Franklin Park contracts their rehabilitation services with the Weston group who provides physical, occupational and speech therapy in the onsite wellness room.
