Stylish Senior Living renovation bridges the gap between past and present

When Senior Lifestyles engaged Direct Supply® Aptura® on their large-scale renovation project, Bella Terra was a fully occupied three-story building with three levels of care: independent living, assisted living and memory care. The primary design objective was to create an interior that still felt like home to the current residents while creating a lifestyle-rich environment that would appeal to the incoming baby boomer generation. Part of achieving this meant updating all three levels of care to the same design aesthetic that exudes a consistent level of dignity and quality of life.

The result is a “Modern Classic” design that blends traditional elements with modern lines. The amenity-rich environment includes distinct destinations, including gorgeous dining rooms, a handsome billiards room, novel café and more to enrich the lifestyles of those that reside there.
