Here at Runk & Pratt, we believe in empowering our residents to be the best and most capable people they can be. We invite you to view our Stories — a collection of laughter, love, and a life lived to the fullest.


Snoezelen Rooms

A Snoezelen Room is a cutting edge environment that surrounds the resident with soothing, highly engaging stimuli that produce a calming effect on those living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Studies show that the mood shift caused by this environment increases self-esteem and confidence, reduces inhibitions and aggressive behavior, and improves overall mood. Our Multi-sensory rooms are one of the many ways Runk & Pratt goes above and beyond to provide memory support that far exceeds that of the average facility.

Innovative Memory Support

Our brand new Runk & Pratt Senior Living Communities, Pearls of Life at Liberty Ridge, uses cutting-edge technology to engage and entertain our seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. These incredible, interactive screens create a multi-sensory experience that keeps our residents curious and mentally stimulated. Watch this quick video to learn more!


Garden to Table

At Runk & Pratt we make sure we are on the cutting edge of innovative advancements in healthy and active living practices for seniors. Hydroponic tower gardens are a fresh take on farming that allows seniors to engage in actively planting, tending, and harvesting a garden indoors without the strain of traditional gardening. These quick-growing gardens provide produce that is more nutritious for the body and more efficient to grow than average over the counter fruits and vegetables. Our “Garden to Table” program brings healthy and active living together.

Liberty Ridge residents plant, tend, and harvest their indoor tower garden.
