32. Targeting women who left school at 12 Lasell Village at Lasell College, in Newton, Massachusetts, USA. Lasell Village has an emphasis on active, intellectually enriched living. The Village combines the security of a continuing care retirement community with the cultural, social, and recreational opportunities of lifelong learning. Designed on the scale of a small New England neighborhood, Lasell Village is located on a beautifully landscaped 13-acre site on the campus of Lasell College in Newton, Massachusetts, a suburban community 10 miles west of Boston. At the Village center is the clock-towered Town Hall Building, surrounded by fifteen residential buildings all connected by enclosed walkways. The Town Hall provides a full range of amenities from personal banking to sophisticated dining, while each residential building includes at least one common space dedicated to continued learning and physical fitness.
33. The need for intellectual stimulus The trend towards the creation of purpose built enclaves for ex-academic staff and perennial researchers (education heavy). The Academy Village community is a diverse and supportive group of neighbors who have discovered a new way of retiring. On any given day, you may find a presentation on local geology, a yoga class, a first-rate concert, an art group exploring watercolors, a guest lecturer speaking on music theory, or a resident leading a discussion on astronomy. If you are looking for a place devoted to life-long learning, the Academy Village is the answer.
33. The need for intellectual stimulus The Arizona Senior Academy is one of the centerpieces of Village life. The Academy, a non-profit, 501 C(3) organization, is the source of educational and cultural programs that complement the programs and social events provided by the Academy Village Homeowners Association (HOA). All residents of the community, 6o years of age or older, are also members of the Academy. Community residents, through the HOA, are actively involved in developing community traditions that complement the offerings of Wellness, Fitness, and the Arizona Senior Academy. There are a number of committees providing opportunities to participate in the structure and direction of community activities, organizations, and governance. Throughout the year, Academy members are provided with programs, seminars, and concerts. Members also enjoy 5 and 10-week courses, mini-courses, and panel discussions. During 2008 alone, the Academy sponsored well over 175 such events. Community service is a major interest among members of the Academy. Academy members have, among other things, made school presentations, mentored local students, served as Science Fair judges, and sponsored aspiring young musicians.

38. Recrafting specialist care The Sweetwater Spectrum model responds to the extraordinary unmet need for appropriate housing for young adults with autism. It is designed as a pilot community that is intended to be replicated nationally. The project will create a 2.8 acre residential setting designed for the unique everyday living needs of young adults with autism. At the same time, Sweetwater will encourage ways for them to participate in the larger community through jobs or day programs. The concept reinforces Sweetwater Spectrum's mission of helping adults with autism live a 'life with purpose', both at home and in their communities. - The residential community is constructed on a site four blocks west of the city's historic downtown plaza. It includes four 4-bedroom homes for sixteen residents, with the ability to expand in the future. A single-level, 2,350-square-foot community center includes a teaching kitchen, an exercise studio, a media room and an art/music room. A 1,440 square-foot- welcome center houses a reception area, administration offices and a studio apartment for a land steward. A gardening program includes a 1.25-acre organic garden, fruit orchards and energy-efficient production greenhouses to provide opportunities for physical skill development and healthy eating. Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects has designed the development specifically for the needs of adults across the entire autism spectrum, ensuring safety and accounting for considerations such as sensitivity to light, sound and movement.
