The neighborhood concept takes a traditional nursing home setting and designs living and dining spaces to create a more intimate feel. The concept at Evergreen Community provides semi-private rooms for individuals and offers smaller, more personal neighborhoods staffed with self-directed teams of highly-trained caregivers. This concept is designed around conveniences for the individuals, and caregivers are empowered to listen and respond to each individuals needs.

The neighborhood concept’s interior design is customized with a warm and inviting color palette, and appealing fixtures and furnishings. Resembling a typical home, individuals will benefit from a focus on the neighborhood’s dining room and family area (complete with fireplace and television), which serves as the central gathering spot for meals and activities. Different activities are conducted simultaneously in each of the neighborhoods, allowing individuals to choose activities they enjoy most. Larger group activities, involving all neighborhoods, take place in the Community Room.

This concept promotes a stronger social bond within the community, ensuring a higher level of care and social well-being for all community members. The goal is to maximize each individual's full potential with as much personal independence when possible.
