Our inspiration when designing for the elderly and vulnerable is to care about the end user’s quality of life. Even a large, multi-occupant home follows a design process tailored to individuals. At the forefront of our approach is deep engagement with our clients, stakeholders, and end users.
From retirement living to specialist care, we follow all fundamental industry design guidelines and the latest research on designing for cognitive change, including the University of Stirling’s ‘Environments for Ageing and Dementia Design Assessment Tool’ (EADDAT) and PAS 6463:2022 ‘Design for the mind – Neurodiversity and the built environment’.
Integrating innovative technology improves residents’ choices in the provision of care. We incorporate fully accessible units that adapt with residents’ evolving needs and consider telehealth services, easier contact with family and friends, and connections to the local community.
“We’ve designed for the later living & care sector for many years. It’s one reason our track record in the field is second to none. Homely and readily accessible environments for all residents that meet the University of Stirling’s Best Practice Guidance and The Happi Principles.”
