What Is Senior Living Design?

Designers today realize that senior living design entails much more than a focus on safety. Senior living design, or universal design for senior living, creates an inviting, comfortable environment that makes it easy for people of any age or ability to live independently to the best of their ability. It promotes aging in place while elevating aesthetic appeal.

Senior Living by Beaufurn creates a sense of home in a new environment with unique and compelling senior living product offerings for common areas, dining rooms, and outdoor spaces.  We are looking forward to sharing these furnishings at the Environments of Aging Conference & Expo April 2-5, 2022, in the Wisconsin Center, Milwaukee, WI.
