As resident expectations and care models begin to shift within the senior care market, specific consideration needs to be given to the environments in which people are choosing to age-in-place. The neighborhoods and campuses residents choose dramatically impact the quality of life they will experience. More importantly, the way senior care environments are organized and designed can have a direct impact on increased social interaction for older adults. Our team is leading national discussions and developing operational innovations within the long-term care industry – ideas that prioritize resident engagement and dignity as a critical design principal.
"MKM truly understands the concept of community engagement, and how if you elevate the quality of life for older adults in a community, you elevate it for the entire community. They get that services don't need to be place dependent."
