The baby boomer generation is in their retirement years. For many, that means moving out of their larger home into an assisted living community. Most are not quite ready for nursing home care, but they need some assistance. Staging a vacant unit allows the prospective occupant to compare the size and scale so that they will know how to furnish their unit.
There are just a few units available, so Premiere Home Stagers was called in to stage one unit as a model. Staging an assisted living unit is a little different. You need to be aware that whomever occupies this unit may be in a wheelchair. Thus, you need to leave some room for turn-arounds.
An area rug is not a welcome item in an assisted living unit. Even if the occupant is fully ambulatory, it is a trip hazard. A round coffee table avoids those sharp edges when walking by to open or shut the window blinds.
The bedroom is spacious enough for a queen-sized bed, plus a dresser and comfy chair for reading, or for a family member to visit while their loved one is napping. It’s always comforting to have your family members’ photo near you when turning out the light.
Even though the bathroom has accessibility aids, it can still look attractive by adding wall art and vanity accessories.
A kitchenette is perfect for storing cold beverages in the refrigerator or for heating up some tea on cool nights.
Hopefully, this model unit will inspire someone to move in and enjoy their retirement years. Facilities like this is a mini-village. You can get services, meals, activities, outings, community events, and develop friendships.
