How Architecture Services Can Meet the Needs of Active Seniors, Rochester, New York

Today’s senior citizens are more fit and active than previous generations, and the most successful living facilities are evolving to meet their needs. Developers planning a new senior living facility should turn to an architecture service provider that understands the tastes and priorities of 21st century seniors and has the tools to meet these challenges. Below are a just a few trends shaping the development of senior living facilities.

Designing for Modern Seniors

1. Fully Integrated Technology

Modern society is saturated with technology, so a “business center” with just computers and communications equipment won’t suffice. Architects and designers should ensure every room has strong Wi-Fi and enough power outlets for residents to charge their devices. More compact medical devices also allow designers the opportunity to conceal equipment inside walls and cabinets, maintaining a comfortable atmosphere that resembles a home more than a hospital.

2. Larger Spaces

architecture servicesMore active residents need space to hold events, participate in programs, and socialize. Many facilities opt for open floor plans that encourage a community feel with the capacity to subdivide the space into smaller rooms when necessary. An emphasis on aesthetically pleasing common areas, such as fitness facilities, can promote morale among the residents and serve as a powerful selling point for families looking for an ideal facility.

3. Convenient Placement

Choose a site near commercial areas, parks, and attractions to give residents a reason to leave and explore the outside community. This simple factor can improve the mental well-being of residents by reducing feelings of isolation and encouraging physical activity, which is key for elderly individuals.
