The Colonnade Assisted Living
CLIENT: Sun Health Communities
LOCATION: Surprise, Arizona
Residing on 33.3 acres, The Colonnade was originally an integrated independent living community that served residents in the northwest valley. As the campus continued to grow, the need to provide further care increased. Todd & Associates worked with Sun Health to design and expand their campus to include assisted living and memory support on 6.7 acres. In phase I, a 42,000 sq. ft., 26-unit assisted living building with a 19,000 sq. ft. 24-bed memory care building attached was built. A future phase will add 20 additional assisted living units and approximately 22,000 sq. ft. to this building. Amenities include several activity rooms including an art studio, theater, game room, music room, and library/media room. There is both casual dining in their bistro/café as well as a main dining room for more formal meals. Landscape design includes lush courtyards with walkways and seating areas. A separate secured courtyard was designed specifically for memory support residents.
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.
