Regional assisted living and memory care facility creates a comfortable, safe, and efficient senior living community for residents and staff
Riverside Senior Life sought to provide first-class assisted living and memory care services to meet the growing needs of the community. With the goal of creating a state-of-the-art community, Riverside planned to offer a comprehensive, operational care model while creating the feeling of home. Several factors drove the need for the local senior living facility. Riverside wanted to provide above-market quality at market-rate costs. It also wanted to create a safe environment that fosters meaningful engagement among residents and staff.
To meet Riverside’s goals, ERDMAN blended evidence-based design with Green House® principles, which focus on creating a homelike setting for seniors within a financially viable facility model. The community’s design also helped Riverside meet its census goals, as well as achieve lower fall/injury rates, greater staff efficiency, and high satisfaction scores from residents, family, and staff.
