How do you help a client that serves the frail elderly in their town when they need to grow quickly so they can expand their ability to serve? The PACE program at Cheyenne was bursting at the seams, and wanted to stay close to town and didn’t want to have to move again in a few years.
After a careful study of the current operation and an extensive study of the region, the team settled on a site around the corner that was large enough to significantly increase their enrollment and had room to grow. JKRP developed a design that responded to their needs for larger social spaces, a large clinical suite with private exam rooms, an expanded physical therapy suite and access to the outdoors with a new large patio to enjoy the wonderful southern Wyoming weather. We oriented the spaces to maximize the available windows, finished with materials inspired by the locale and created a new Home for the program. Working with a talented and dedicated team of consultants, contractors and suppliers, the project was completed in six months and fully operational weeks later to the delight of the program leadership and most importantly, the seniors they serve.
