Environments for Aging - Fall 2017 - 27

Look and feel
Beyond supporting a person-centered model of care, communities
have transformed to answer higher expectations for the overall look and
feel of a property-specifically, saying goodbye to Queen Anne and
hello to a modern, contemporary approach. Board members say the
introduction of HGTV, Food Network, and even Oprah into our culture
has ingrained a new sense of self and possibility that's thrown past
practices of demographic segmentation out the window. "[Residents]
are looking not just at what's for 'old people,' but what's for people.
They want to be engaged in what's going on in the world around them,"
Lindsey says.
And, "it's where the money is," says Vassar Byrd, CEO of Rose Villa
in Portland, Ore. "My customers don't want to move into an institution of
any kind. They're looking for a neighborhood that supports their needs.
The more it feels like a nice neighborhood, the more likely I am to attract
them. There are so many options for them to not move anywhere, so
many services available ... it's a lot to get them to say, 'This other place is
nicer than my home.'" Additionally, isolationism of years' past is being replaced by senior living properties that better connect to their surrounding
communities and encourage visitors with retail and dining options open
to all. "Any time you do that, the aesthetic needs to fit in the context and not
feel like an alien environment, so I think that's also impacted aesthetics,"

says Alexis Denton, principal at SmithGroupJJR (San Francisco).
Simultaneous trends skewed toward homelike and hospitality
design have emerged, as well, with the former primarily occurring in
higher-acuity care settings (skilled nursing, memory care) and the latter in independent living, active adult, or short-term rehab, with overlap between the two-think hospitality-inspired centralized services
like dining but in a small house community, says Rob Pfauth, director
of senior living planning at Erdman (Madison, Wis.). "They're both
responses to different segments of the marketplace, and each has
its own place," he says. "It's an interesting dichotomy where they're
complementary but still divergent."
Product manufacturers have taken note of the demand for change,
too, with offerings evolving dramatically from the five patterns and
three colorways an interior designer might have found available 20
years ago, says Laura Busalacchi, senior director of interior services
for Brookdale Senior Living (Milwaukee). There's been a surge in
technology that allows the creation of materials that are suitable
for senior living (cleanable, durable, etc.) but are also stylish, while
furniture manufacturers simultaneously have explored options that
are safe and supportive without simply being a plain, square chair.
"There's a lot of change just within that that allows the interiors to
look and feel different because of the options designers now have,"

Submitted by Hanna Z. Interiors
Ltd. This interior-only remodel
transformed a 26-bed wing of a
long-term care facility into a 15-bed
residential-inspired hospice with a
large common area zoned into living
room/library, coffee bar/hospitality,
children's activity, and nurses' station
areas. It also features private resident
suites.

Submitted by SFCS Inc. This
revitalization project includes a new
five-story, 60-unit luxury apartment
building with underground parking, an
effort that produced revenue to support
campus upgrades and resort-style
amenities such as an events center and
wellness center. Two nursing cottages
with 10 private rooms each were also
added to deliver a continuum of care.

New construction and remodeling were
key to this repositioning effort to deliver
a new model of care for skilled nursing in
a household environment. Details of that
effort include simulated front porches
at the entry to each household; great
rooms with living, dining, and activity
zones; and bedrooms placed in more
private spaces.

Submitted by Perkins+Will Access to
the outdoors was an important piece
of the stress-relieving mission of this
new-build hospice center. Each pair of
its 18 inpatient rooms shares a porch,
where double doors enabled patient
beds to be rolled outside to overlook
tranquility gardens. Three patient
pods were organized around a central
courtyard, while a chapel has its own
garden, as well.
