Ask a Pro: What Are Some Important Features in Senior Living Today?



As one of the Midwest’s leading hotel and multi-family residential design-builders, Consolidated Construction has had the privilege working with many world-class hoteliers and developers. These experts know how to attract guests, operate smarter and deliver a great resident experience. So, it’s no accident that the senior living providers offering excellent healthcare in an environment that’s inspiring and cost effective to operate have the highest census and far outperform other communities.

Here’s a lesson learned you may want to consider when building, expanding or renovating your next senior community:

Insist on Delivering Privacy and Dignity. Make sure rooms are large enough with their own private bathrooms. Bathrooms should feature a sink, toilet and a shower. Opt for quality doors, finishes and fixtures. They will look better, clean easier perform better and last longer.

Keep this in mind when planning your next facility. If you feel like you’re living in a resort hotel than life is pretty darn good. Tim Rinn has over 20 years of design‐build healthcare and senior living experience, and has assisted clients throughout Wisconsin and the Midwest. Consolidated Construction’s Assisted Living Team is ready to help you plan, fund, design, build or renovate your next senior living community.
