The Deupree House went from a standalone independent living apartment building with modest amenities to a state-of-the-art campus offering contemporary amenities, services, and nursing care. A new culture, rooted in resident choice and resident involvement in directing their care and daily lives has evolved, and it guides all aspects of the community. #SpecialProjects #TheDeupreeHouseandNursingCottages #SFCSInc #BestPractices #DesignforAgingKnowledgeCommunity #DeupreeHouse #DFA #CaseStudies #DFAR12
