Working with seniors, whether independent or needing special care, requires a caring staff. That staff also needs care and nurturing, and sometimes just a quiet place to take a break.

Beacon Hill at Eastgate focuses on creating a culture that supports its hard-working team. To that end, they are investing in creating new breakrooms that offer comfort and restful aesthetics.

The first breakroom was converted from an older, unused breakroom being used as a storage space. Since it had an existing kitchenette, the rough plumbing was already in place. The room needed new finishes, new lighting, and a new layout.

Beacon Hill started as Michigan Christian Home in the 1950s. The facility has grown over time and changed ownership. Beacon Hill was established in 2010 to become five buildings; memory care, and nursing care with more than eight dining rooms and restaurants, a chapel, exercise, theater, and game rooms. The buildings have been modernized as needs have grown. The most recent apartment building, “The Vistas” set the stage for a contemporary hospitality look and feel that leadership wants for all spaces going forward.

This breakroom features restaurant-style tables, booth seating, and lounge soft seating, procured by r.o.i. Design. Light levels vary from very bright to soft lighting to accommodate a variety of uses. New flooring such as luxury vinyl planks in the eating area and carpet in the lounge area were installed. The room got all new paint, graphic wallpaper, cabinets, and appliances, creating a non-traditional breakroom.

r.o.i. Design looks forward to sharing more with its readers on upgrades to Beacon Hill at Eastgate. For more about Beacon Hill, please visit: beaconhillgr.org.
