Environments for Aging - Spring 2020 - 28

Project details

a resort-type experience, the project team's
goal was to keep services, including food,
laundry, and housekeeping, from crossing with
residents in the corridors utilizing separate
front- and back-of-house spaces. "That's a
premium design feature," Berg says. "If you put
it out front and center, that's probably the least
expensive way to do it, but it doesn't give you
that hospitality feel."
Taking advantage of the natural grade of
the property, the project team also added a
discreet service drive behind the care buildings
to access a service core hub. "All food/beverage and housekeeping are centralized here
to create a more efficient operational model,"
Berg says. Supplies and materials are brought
in on a lower level and migrate vertically into the
community, while the main kitchen is adjacent
to the independent living dining venues and
accessible to the assisted living and memory
care floors through a service elevator. Smaller
satellite prep pantries serve the licensed care
dining venues.

bring views and daylight inside. Color palettes
and artwork themes vary between the floors
to help residents navigate the building. Units
in the assisted living neighborhood measure
300-400 square feet, and memory care offers
272-square-foot single studio suites and incorporates a centralized, secure courtyard. Each
neighborhood features similar amenity spaces,
such as a theater and library, that are scaled
appropriately to the setting.
Furthermore, the community's affiliations
with the Texas A&M University Health Science
Center and CHI St. Joseph Health MatureWell
Lifestyle Center provide residents with the
opportunity to access additional health,
rehabilitation, and wellness services via the
community transit program. This combination of curated offerings and high-end living
environments has made Parc's first venture
in Texas a success, Slavin says. "What we
wanted to do was provide a very high-end,

hospitality-enriched senior living experience,"
he says. "Even as we've moved from a pure
independent model back into assisted living
and now memory care, we've continued that
hospitality perspective and infused it into our
licensed care offerings." EFA

With 80 percent of residents moving into assisted living or memory care coming from the
community's independent living neighborhood,
Parc wanted to ensure residents didn't experiences a step down in experience. As a result,
architectural detailing such as crown molding
and wood materials and the level of finishes in
the assisted living and memory care communities mirror those used in independent living.
"We have an obligation to maintain that level of
quality of experience throughout our lifestyle
continuum," Slavin says.
Residential unit sizes vary, with independent living apartments averaging 1,000
square feet with open floor plans and large
windows and balconies or porches to help
