The 2016 Leading Age Arizona award for Innovation in Environmental Design was granted to Royal Oak's Friendship House, the memory care center that opened on May 2015 on the Royal Oaks Sun City campus. This center of excellence offers 56 private suites with private baths in a secure setting designed to "feel like home." Tours can be arranged by calling.
it can be hard to distinguish yourself apart from your competition but there is one such community that has found a way to stand out they have set themselves apart as leaders in providing a haven of security love and compassion that sets the bar exceptionally high welcome to the Friendship House at Royal Oaks we really wanted to create a space that was really felt open a secure space but not one that made people feel closed in so it was really important for us to have high ceilings and lots of light and spaces to roam and walk from one neighborhood to the next so that people don't feel are limited or I can only go here but I can't go there so that sense of openness and welcoming across the neighborhood's I think makes us really different than a lot of other places what we saw which was really miraculous to me is that residents that moved from our skilled environment in our memory care area moved here and they immediately identified with this place as a sense of peace and security they created such a sense of being home again that they actually improved functionally and cognitively in many ways and so that was the most miraculous most rewarding thing we saw about people moving into the Friendship House well when we started on the design development phase of this building we wanted to be conscious of the environment we wanted to be conscious of energy-saving features and sustainability and so we worked with a really great group of architects and a design team that really helped incorporate our ideas throughout the design while it was important to us to not create nursing stations in the neighborhoods we wanted our neighborhoods to truly feel like a residential area where people just live like they would at home and so we have our caregivers who work from small mobile tablets where they can go in and out of the rooms to help document the assistance that they offer the residents as well as the medications that they provide to them but we created a central hub between the neighborhoods where our nurse and our manager and our ancillary staff can work from so that they can hear what's going on in the neighborhoods and that the neighborhoods are visible to them but not so visible to the residents everything that we wanted in the way of staff functions we intentionally designed it in a fashion to where it's not on the residents path to anywhere so that everything the resident sees is just like being in the house and we think that that makes them feel like they're at home and not in a facility please join us as we celebrate the Royal Oaks team responsible for the creation of the Friendship House by presenting them with the innovation and Environmental Design Award
