the assisted living area is now open to all resi- dents and includes an exam room, doctor and nurses’ stations, and a small laboratory. “The remodel looks like a great add,” said Senior Living by Design judge Mark Kuberski, project manager at Meyer Design. The West Grove expansion was comprised


of three two-story and one three-story villa buildings for independent living. Residents sug- gested that the expansion be environmentally friendly and the project was LEED certified. The expansion underwent a long approval process because of its location adjacent to a single-family home community. A challenge was implementing new wellness


programs to match the newly renovated prop- erty. About 20 resident committees were formed to explore their needs through a wellness strat- egy. A “button brigade,” for example, repre- sented the interests of the residents who like to sew and knit. Regular meetings were held with the various committees and with all residents to explain design ideas and answer questions. One of the unique aspects of the project


is that residents were surveyed to see whether their perceptions of wellness had changed af- ter the completion of the renovations. “A lot of people talk about wellness,” said Hoglund. “But seniors may not know what that means.” The follow-up survey found that 35 percent


of residents reported staying longer at dinner and 32 percent reported feeling a greater sense of belonging—an indication of more social- ization and an important part of wellness. Overall, 20 percent of residents reported an improvement in their physical wellness, while 45 percent identified better access to wellness- related resources.
