Retirement Living in Federal Way: Home Design

Posted by Kimberly Vickers on Sep 25, 2012 7:37:00 AM

Maybe you are senior living home plans septconsidering whether to stay in your current home, or move to a senior living community. One thing to consider is whether or not your current home is equipped so that you’ll feel comfortable and safe. No matter what style of home you choose to live in—and Village Green offers many styles to choose from—we understand the move is a huge transition.

Studies show that as the next generation transitions into the retirement years, the demands for what they want from their community will be very different from their parents. Today’s retirees may be caring for an elderly parent or have adult children still living at home. Whatever the case, it is important to think about what you want from your community so that you are able to live comfortably and safely as well as entertain guests. The residences at Village Green have been designed from the ground up to meet the comfort and safety needs of seniors.

Moving a Loved One

The design of the home you live in now may look very different ten years from now. Some design elements are easy to install or remove when not needed but others may require expensive remodeling so it’s important to think ahead and anticipate future needs. Does your home include the ability to move around comfortably and safely? Can it accommodate limitations brought on by mobility issues?

  • Design considerations might include:
  • No step entryways
  • Pull-out cabinets
  • Single lever faucets
  • Wide doorways that may need to accommodate a wheelchair
  • Built-in shower seats
  • Electrical outlets that are easier to reach instead of low by the floor

At Village Green Retirement Campus, our home plans accommodate residents—whether they’re considering single family cottages, independent apartment living, or assisted living. Whatever your choice, we’ll strive to make you as comfortable and safe as possible. For more information about how we can assist you in the planning for your new home, please contact Village Green staff or schedule a visit online.
