As baby boomers approach their golden years, senior living operators are working harder than ever to battle against the stigmas associated with dated senior living and elderly care environments. Residents and families are looking for more modern environments with a wider variety of amenities, a greater sense of community and more options for activity. Even though the market is demanding more, operators need to stay competitive and are constantly looking to find creative ways to meet the evolving needs of residents while managing their costs.
It’s a complex challenge with seemingly opposing interests. However, ERDMAN’s Integrative Thinking approach can help you develop a strategy that meets your unique goals and achieve your vision. Rather than tackling each challenge one-by-one, ERDMAN’s team of strategic planning advisors, architects, interior designers, engineers and construction managers examines the entire situation from multiple perspectives, allowing you to see the interconnecting factors and make decisions that solve difficult problems at once.
From idea generation and sketches on paper to final construction designs, ERDMAN’s Integrative Thinking approach includes:
By managing all facets of the project, ERDMAN can more easily identify efficiencies, which helps us deliver 99.5 percent of our projects on-time, and 98 percent on-budget.
“The overwhelming stigma associated with senior care is the old nursing home and people’s vision of what that used to be, when in fact it’s exactly the opposite. The communities that are being developed today are beautiful and have amenities that are geared towards living and the independence of the resident.”
