Case Study

The Odd Fellows Life Community-Rebekah Rehabilitation & Extended Care Center

Rebekah Rehabilitation and Extended Care Center believes in resident-centered care, communicated in a hotel atmosphere and substantial architectural enhancements: separate lounges, separate dining rooms, wider corridors, biaxial resident rooms and day lit program and activity spaces.

Providing work areas that are pleasurable to the eye and less restrictive to accomplish ones’ particular tasks, be they nursing or housekeeping, has already increased worker performance and general satisfaction. A bakery and café in the main lobby allows residents/families and employees to co-mingle in a comfortable setting.

Increased space for rehabilitation was requested for future demand. A larger kitchen was requested in anticipation of other entities on the campus in the future. Resident rooms were designed to ensure patient privacy and a better quality of life. The owner requested vibrant color palettes reflecting their multi-ethnic census.

The center received a national design award.
