Senior living and the importance of functional design
By Maria Drosos, Executive Director
Moving into an assisted living and memory care community often means that there is a bit of downsizing that comes into play for many seniors. However, that doesn’t mean that the new home should compromise good design in its layout.
At Melody Living Lake in the Hills we implement senior wellness all the way down to the foundation of our community – literally. Our designers and builders have intentionally created a variety of living options for seniors that are mobility-minded and beyond comfortable. Our spacious floor plans allow for seniors to freely enjoy their new home and its luxury finishes and apartment features by ensuring that safety, security and comfort are all present in the design.
In addition to our floor plans, the entire community layout facilitates environmental wellness by creating an easy to get around layout with both indoor and outdoor amenities that are sure to spark an interest with all residents and their loved ones.
Cultivating a quality senior living community
Encouraging seniors to partake in hobbies and social activities is available throughout the community offering endless opportunities to safely socialize and become friends with our staff and other residents. Our Community Life Director works in tandem with the residents to create an environment that resonates with all lifestyles and abilities.
Outdoor design at Melody Living
Our design focus extends beyond the interior of our assisted living and memory care neighborhoods. Step outside to one of Melody Living Lake in the Hills’ patios or garden areas for some fresh air and relaxing outdoor amenities.
Cozy up next to our outdoor fire pit, enjoy a playful afternoon with visiting grandkids on our outdoor playground, take a stroll through our walking paths or relax to a good book in our fragrant garden area during the warmer months of the year for a blissful afternoon out. Whatever you decide, there is certainly something for everyone at Melody Living Lake in the Hills.
