W

hen people make the decision to move into a senior living
community, it's usually because something has changed in
their lives-they're ready to downsize, they want to live closer
to family or friends, a spouse has died, or the home they live in
no longer supports their physical abilities.
So like any homebuyer, prospective residents often judge
a location by how it looks and whether it appeals to them
aesthetically and not necessarily on how it will support them in years to come. "People feel
better about a place that is attractive and well cared for," says Jeffrey J. Bogart, senior interior
designer and principal at Eppstein Uhen Architects (Milwaukee). And how people respond to
environments and the expectations they have for them have shifted drastically in the past five
to 10 years, thanks to the advent of HGTV and countless interior design websites and apps.
Baby boomers are more sophisticated and educated about design and know what they want
for themselves or for their aging parents.
While the look and feel of a space and how it's received by prospective residents will likely
be the ultimate selling point, designers and owners/operators understand that the long-term
functionality of a senior living community relies on its underlying safety elements. As residents
age, it's critical that shuffling feet, waning vision, and diminishing strength be answered by
products specified for senior living.
To that end, balancing style and safety is an essential design strategy for today's senior
living communities, from independent living to memory care. "Everyone enjoys good design,"
says LuAnn Thoma-Holec, principal at Thoma-Holec Design (Mesa, Ariz.). "It can change the
quality of life for residents no matter which level of care they are in."
Several new design approaches and product offerings on the market are helping communities achieve environments that are safe, clean, invigorating, and conducive to purposeful
activities, and offer choices that are life-enhancing for residents.
