rails in corridors, and wider doorways, are
meant to reduce the functional impact of
age-related disabilities by enhancing and
prolonging residents' independence and
their dignity and quality of life.
Furthermore, by engaging residents to
participate in the planning and delivery of
their own care, such as setting a table,
folding laundry, or chairing a resident
council, they can gain a heightened
sense of purpose and meaning, unlike the
"pampering" characteristic of resort-style
settings, which can promote dependence.
Growing consensus is that the ideal
small house or household size ranges
between eight and 16 residents, to foster
the development of friendships and a level
of intimacy consistent with a domestic

tional aspect due to the regular presence
of grandchildren and great-grandchildren
visiting loved ones.
By employing universal workers and
consistent staffing, frontline caregivers in
effect also become part of the family unit.
In addition, the scale of the residence and
the proximity of sleeping and living quarters permit residents to feel more at home.
Hospitality advocates, on the other
hand, might argue that smaller household-type projects are too reminiscent
of nursing homes with their low-slung,
sometimes sprawling footprints and overt
emphasis on the care aspect of senior
living. Hotel-like models instead entice
younger retirees to move in by touting the
prospect of carefree living with an array

environment. An emphasis is often placed
on engaging residents' nearby family
members to play an ongoing and active
role in their loved ones' care. This often
leads to a naturally occurring intergenera-

and even including putting greens and
cocktail lounges.
Hospitality-inspired senior living communities can range from standalone AL

or AL with memory care to exclusively
independent living (IL) or full-fledged
CCRCs. Similarly, community size
might vary from less than 100 residents
to more than 1,000 dwellings.
Many providers focus heavily on
heightened curb appeal, grander amenity spaces, and a more lavish menu of
dining options and à la carte services
to appeal to adult children who influence the choice of accommodations
for their parents.

Matter of choice
When comparing the suitability of
residential and hospitality models, it's
important to look at the characteristics
of the population being served. For
example, a hospitality-driven setting
might better accommodate the tastes,
preferences, and lifestyles of younger,
more active, and more affluent seniors,
and thus be better suited for IL and
