Senior living industry leaders continue to look for ways to improve the lives of their residents. Expressions of hospitality design are being implemented in senior living communities in order to create social and active environments. Residential design continues to be implemented as well, in order to give residents in need of increased care a comfortable, home-like environment.
"Home" means different things to different people and in the world of senior living, providers across the country need to discover what home means to its specific residents. With the right designers, providers can continue to look to the future and explore more residential inspirations on senior living design to give residents environments that truly feel like home sweet home.
Design can help erase some negative preconceptions of senior living by conveying a non-institutional look through the building’s design vernacular and finishes. Design can also positively affect residents’ well-being.
