This includes relevant research on characteristics, planning and costs associated with innovative design for aging. In addition, DFA provides outcome data on the value of these design solutions and environments.

The existing CCRC sits on 44 rolling acres in Sellersville, Pennsylvania. A two-phase master plan was produced to expand the community and create a "residential village." This project was the first phase and is the new three-story personal care building for 20 residents, adult day services serving up to 40 residents, and a wellness center.#DesignforAgingKnowledgeCommunity #SpecialProjects #CaseStudies #DFAR12 #DFA #RockhillMennoniteCommunity #BestPractices #SFCSInc
