Senior Living Interior Design

The senior living design specialists at Directions In Design have diverse experience in interior planning and interior design for all levels of care. Our staff of professionals applies forward-thinking concepts to produce beautiful and highly functional independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing environments. Certainly all three levels of care require superb programming skills, excellent knowledge of product resources, meticulous drawing packages and detailed specification documentation. Enjoyment. warmth. convenience. dedication. privacy. dignity. love. companionship. whatever the attributes to be conveyed, a well-planned, aesthetically-pleasing facility portrays a high level of owner commitment and staff competency. "A home away from home" or "new home" approach to Senior Living and Elder Care is positively reinforced when public and private spaces allow residents and resident families to live, interact and visit in pleasant surroundings.

When we at Directions In Design ask for client evaluations, invariably the most gratifying comments revolve around improved attitudes and morale of staff. At all levels of care, from active adult independent living to skilled nursing, employee reactions to upgraded facilities result in increased dedication to residents and to the care of residents. That all important but immeasurable effect is an extremely important reward for owner expenditures involved in upgrading older facilities as well as new construction projects. The Direction in Design staff's capabilities include a comprehensive spectrum of planning services.

Senior Living Design Testimonial:

I am pleased to write this letter as a testimonial for Jane Ganz, owner and principal of Directions in Design. As the CEO of Mary's Woods at Marylhurst in Lake Oswego, Oregon, I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Jane over the past three years.

I first met Jane at a senior living conference. She immediately impressed me with her long interior design experience in multiple venues and wide geographic settings.

Finally, most impressive was the quality of her work as evidenced by customer satisfaction and the numerous design awards that she has received. As a result of our meeting and the quality of her work, Mary's Woods was pleased to contract with Jane to lead the interior design work for a remodel and expansion of our dining and social lounge areas.

Jane was the consummate professional in the partnership that emerged. She brought her own professional set to us, but also was very engaged with our heritage and preferences. The first major project was the updating of our major dining room. The outcome was very well received by all segments of our community and has created a dining environment that is both inviting and charming. A second area that Jane designed was a new private dining room. I can only say that Jane created a five-star environment. It is beautiful, warm and so comfortable.

Her greatest achievement was the interior design and furnishing of a new social lounge with a food and wine bar. This space is simply spectacular and has become the centerpiece of our community. The focal point is a magnificent fireplace. The room furnished with the most inviting colors, light and comfortable furnishing that makes it truly our common living room. It is a space that has become heavily used and is universally praised for its beauty and its invitation to truly feel at home.

I am pleased to give the highest recommendation for Jane and her company. She was a remarkable gift to us and a true partner in our commitment to create an environment that is beautiful, warm and a reflection of our values and heritage.
