This Continuing Care Retirement Community was looking to improve its facilities to meet the demands of the marketplace. The organization’s mission was to enhance the resident’s privacy and dignity by reducing the institutional feel of the facility and providing a more homelike environment for the residents.
Based on a neighborhood model and creating a “residential” environment, the solution was achieved by establishing neighborhoods on each floor of the new addition and the renovated Reed House. The residential feel was achieved by accentuating the resident and common spaces and the selection of residential interior finishes and furnishings. Each floor of both the addition and renovation consists of private resident rooms with bathrooms, and includes a dining room, living room, and bath spas. Other amenities for the residents include a beauty shop, multi-purpose room, physical therapy, and meditation room. An exterior courtyard provides an area for residents to enjoy the outdoors. Each floor of the Reed House renovation consisted of transforming semiprivate rooms into private rooms with bathrooms. The renovations include additional common spaces that support the residents.
The facility was transformed from all double occupancy room to all single occupancy private rooms. The home-like feel provides a greatly improved environment for residents and their family members to spend time together.
