Friendship House at Royal Oaks
CLIENT: Royal Oaks Lifecare Community
Location: Sun City, Arizona
Todd & Associates has enjoyed an ongoing relationship with Royal Oaks Life care Community in their continual quest to provide upscale, full life care services for their residents. Memory care was previously apart of the existing Health Care Center which provides skilled nursing and long term care services. Memory care 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 two-story memory care building, called Friendship House, with a residential character more appropriate to their unique needs. The new facility offers 56 residents with private rooms, as well as a large centrally located common space with living room, activities room and dining area. Additional amenities include a spa, bathing facility and a salon. Outdoor therapy gardens provide a variety of secure recreational spaces for the residents. The relocation of 56 memory care beds from the existing Health Center also greatly improves the quality of life for its residents by reducing the number of beds allowing the conversion of all existing semi-private (double occupancy) rooms into private (single occupancy) rooms.
Individuals and their families are no longer satisfied with the limited choices offered in traditional senior living communities and healthcare facilities (independent, assisted living, skilled care, memory care, active adult). Today’s seniors are looking for options such as alternative health and wellness programs, access to technology, high level of care, and comfortable spaces where their families can visit and residents can age in place. Whether it is an existing CCRC expanding its continuum of care, a new senior living community, or any specialized healthcare facility, Todd & Associates brings new and innovative solutions to redefine "senior living" and enrich the health and well-being of its residents.
