Occupant satisfaction is a significant indication of how facility managers are doing their jobs, and this is especially true in nursing care and senior living facilities, according to an article on the Today's Facility Manager website. 

The completion of a 16,000-square-foot “Main Street” facility at the Texhoma Christian Care Center (TCCC) in Wichita Falls, Texas, gave residents an added dimension to their lives by providing entertaining diversions from the routine of daily nursing care, the article said.

“The driving factor behind the decision to build this addition was to enhance the lives of our residents and their daily activities. We wanted a place where multiple activities could take place simultaneously. Previously, we had one room for activities, so it was not only challenging to accommodate many residents, but we also couldn’t have more than one or two activities occurring at once,” Jaymee Holder, TCCC administrator, said in the article.

The single-story, steel-framed building not only expanded the quantity of space for residents to do activities and socialize, but it also significantly improved the quality of these experiences, according to the article.
