DFAR12: The Friendship House at Royal Oaks 

03-23-2015 16:51

In mid-2011, discussions began regarding how to improve the environment in a secure area of a care center servicing dementia residents. This wing includes two halls of resident rooms: one being part of the original 1983 build, the other an addition in 1994. In 2006, a renovation was completed merging the two halls to make an enlarged 50-bed secure wing.
