Todd & Associates has enjoyed an ongoing relationship with Royal Oaks Lifecare Community in their continual quest to provide distinctive lifecare services. Memory support was previously a part of the existing Health Care Center, which provided skilled nursing and long-term care services. Memory support residents, however, respond better in a more intimate and residential-style living environment. Programming services revealed that the residents would be best served with a new memory support environment designed around their everyday activity, dining, and living spaces. Friendship House was designed to capture this concept more appropriately to the resident’s needs. The award-winning, new 56-unit, 2-story building offers 4 neighborhoods of 14 private rooms, each wrapped around a centrally located common space featuring a living room, activities room, and dining area. Additional amenities include a spa, salon, and bathing room. Outdoor therapy gardens provide a variety of secure recreational spaces for the residents.
