Senior Living Community Design

Spaces that Maintain and Enhance Quality of Life

You strive to offer nurturing, thoughtful, quality care and services to your clients. We design facilities that support your mission. Our architects and engineers stay on top of the latest advances and research in facilities for senior living and care. We’ll work alongside you to explore the next steps for your facilities and services. Whether it’s renovations, additions, new construction, Widseth has guided numerous non-profit, private, and public care providers through the planning, design, and construction process. We are well-versed in the industry’s issues, trends in construction technology, and the requisite state and local building codes.

Holistic Needs Assessment

Our process begins with a comprehensive assessment of the unique needs and aspirations of senior living residents. We engage in active consultations with clients, families, and care professionals to ensure that the architectural and engineering design aligns with the well-being and lifestyle requirements of the elderly community.

Design Considerations:
  • Sensory stimulation
  • Dementia
  • Dysphagia
  • Bariatrics
  • Quality of Life
  • Home-like, non-institutional
  • Inter-generational programming
  • Privacy and dignity

Seamless Integration of Care Services

Understanding the importance of care and support for senior residents, we integrate essential services seamlessly into the design.
