Kansas Masonic Home in Wichita, Kansas has unveiled their most recently renovated Assisted Living Community. The former Manor Building has been divided into multiple households, each with a unique design theme (Mid-Century, Spanish Mission, and American Farmhouse). The various concepts allow residents or family member to decide which household should be called theirs.
DCI's design process was directly influenced by the 'person centered' philosophy of care; in which the residents are provided an environment they regard as home, not just "homelike". A distinct front porch sets the theme for each household's design and aids residents in describing to guests what their personal home looks like. Each resident's household is complete with a living room, kitchen, den and dining room ready for use in their everyday life.
KMH's Pavilion Community is set to be complete by the end spring 2015, and will be the final phase of this 15 acre project. Check back to see the images of the Pavilion. In the meantime see our Senior Living link to learn about other projects.
