CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's largest operator of senior living communities tapped Robycross, a remodeler of retirement and health care centers, to renovate nine therapy clinics in its communities across North Carolina. Brookdale Senior Living's new Innovative Senior Care therapy clinics help to minimize the effects of aging by promoting functional independence, improving overall health, and providing techniques for preventing pain and disability.
Through Robycross' work for Brookdale, Innovative Senior Care therapy clinics were recently added to Clare Bridge of Asheville; Clare Bridge of Winston-Salem; Salisbury Gardens; Greensboro Place; High Point Manor; Reynolda Park in Winston-Salem; and Sterling House of Shelby. Robycross also completed two Innovative Senior Care therapy clinics at the Carriage Club of Charlotte.
"Including these nine projects, Robycross has completed about 45 clinics in North Carolina and Virginia for Brookdale Senior Living during the last five years," said Wilson Worley, president of National Retirement Corporation, which represents Brookdale Senior Living in the development of the therapy clinics.
"Innovative Senior Care therapists throughout the network have expressed high praise for Robycross' quality of work and their ability to work without interrupting the daily activities of community residents, patients and staff."
Brookdale tapped Robycross in mid-2012 to start these latest renovations. All the projects were completed last month.
"It is an honor to be a part of these important transformations to help serve our seniors," said Raquel Mercer, director of business development with Robycross. "We are delighted to deliver quality workmanship and experience in retirement living and health care renovations to help promote good health and wellness for Brookdale residents."
The new Innovative Senior Care therapy clinics provide traditional therapy as well as less conventional, but highly beneficial means of rehabilitation, including massage therapy, chair yoga and Tai Chi. Health education and group exercise classes are also offered in the clinics.
Family-owned and established in 1950, Robycross deftly blends decades of residential remodeling and commercial construction experience to specialize in the interior and exterior renovation of retirement and health care facilities. Its work includes continuing-care retirement communities, independent and assisted living communities, Alzheimer's and memory-impaired apartments, community common areas, skilled nursing centers, hospitals and medical offices. Robycross has worked with the nation's largest operators in the retirement industry, including Brookdale Senior Living, Sunrise Senior Living and Elmcroft Senior Living, as well as small owners.
