Dekker/Perich/Sabatini has expertise in the design of senior living communities and is constantly looking to innovate for the future of the senior living market. Because senior living is constantly being redefined, we look to the growing need for places to live that adapt to every stage of our lives and at all levels of affordability. Our design professionals, through specialities in universal design, CPTED, the WELL Building Standard, affordable housing, healthcare design, geo-mapping, and many other skill sets, are dedicated to creating comfortable living spaces that allow residents of any age to age gracefully, while creating an environment for their families and staff who support them to engage at their highest level.
Senior Living encompasses a broad level of community types from independence to high tech | high touch care that requires collaboration between housing and healthcare typologies in order to carefully balance independence and care. At D/P/S, our knowledge transcends the senior living market overlapping expertise in multi-family housing, mixed-use, healthcare and even educational building types to glean innovative approaches to a complex market typology in order to help our clients meet the market demand while serving our most respected population.
Our collaborative approach to seniors housing design emphasizes communication among the entire project team, client, and users. We firmly believe that including the owner and/or operator (and their staff), resident requirements (and the role of their families) at every step of the project is vital to its success.
