Innovations in Senior Independent Housing

Our programming, consulting and design work creating state of the art senior independent housing is directed by the evolving needs and desires of the coming wave of “boomers.” Our designs not only allow residents to age in-place, but provide the amenities and spaces to live well. Places that support continued growth and learning, brain fitness, holistic wellness, art, music and movement programs, connections to a broader community, and integration in the community are incorporated in our progressive and informed approach.

Design for people with Dementia

Our research has indicated that approximately 40% of people over the age of 80, and 60% of people over the age of 90 have some form of dementia. This fact has tremendous impact on designing environments well for the aging. In some instances our clients create environments built specifically for mid and later stages of dementia. In others, even senior independent settings, wise clients who wish to comprehensively support aging in-place consider dementia one issue many of their residents may some day face.

Our research has also yielded tools we use to create environments that support the needs and issues those with dementia often have.

Settings for the Neuro diverse

Not all people process information, including environmental cues, in the same manner. Some, including those with brain injury, life trauma, and those on the Autism Spectrum are assisted by thoughtful environments. Our experience in creating environments for the neurodiverse allows us to match clinical and safety needs with responsive calming and soothing places. Employing tools such as trauma-informed design, redirection, and normalized homelike settings supports those who live and work in our buildings to thrive.

Harm Reduction Settings

We believe that substance abuse is a healthcare issue, not a criminal issue. All people deserve to be safe, heard, and given care and compassion. Our harm reduction settings grow out of our client’s philosophical approach to providing care and support. Many include clinical care, food and clothing banks, shower, toilet and clothes washing amenities, vocational training spaces, and calming Snoezelen rooms to support our clients to assist those they serve.

Design for Aging in-place

We know from our resident interviews that the ability to age in-place is the top priority for seniors. Our research has informed us about the common conditions and issues that often challenge seniors, and if not considered carefully during design, can lead to a resident needing to seek a higher level of care. Supporting aging in-place not only responds to the needs of residents, but can often result in a lower resident turn-over rate and higher sustained occupancy.

To support aging in-place, we thoughtfully consider every design aspect and detail for its ability to support a host of physical and cognitive challenges that residents may develop.
