Life Care Services had the vision to create a new direction in senior living, one that emphasizes choice, flexibility, and independence. LCS engaged Todd & Associates to create Sagewood, an 82.5-acre master-planned life plan community in north Phoenix. Todd & Associates provided a wide range of programs for seniors seeking full-service, resort-style retirement living. Over the years, the campus has expanded to include: 336 independent living apartments, 44 assisted living units, 24 villas, and 54 casitas. Also, a part of the campus is The Acacia Health Center with 30-memory care beds and 78 skilled care beds. Sagewood provides its residents with an array of amenities that promote healthy lifestyles. These spaces include a fitness center, indoor pool, salon and spa, an art studio, and several activity rooms. All amenities focus on indoor/outdoor living with themed courtyards, a central main courtyard, and an outdoor mixed-use Main Street. This Main Street features loft apartments over dining venues with the option of formal dining, casual, and a café. The 1-story sub-grade parking structure contains 346 parking spaces and resides below the apartment buildings, Main Clubhouse, and HealthyLife Services Clubhouse. The 420-seat Oasis Event Center was designed to accommodate a variety of events, including musical and theatrical performances, concerts, and special events. Currently under construction is a 101-unit independent living building, an 18 hole putting course, and renovation and expansion of the existing dining.
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.
