As the senior living sector develops, Saunders continue to evolve to meet the challenges of delivering high quality assisted and independent living projects, as well as integrated dementia communities.
Government policy is to encourage elderly people to live independently for as long as possible, which has led to the emergence of independent living – providing specially designed, owner-occupied, self-contained housing often with round-the-clock support and nursing assistance on hand if required.
Paradoxically, as the elderly population in the UK has grown, the provision of residential care by local authorities has shrunk. Improved regulatory standards have also resulted in the closure of many homes that no longer meet the regulations. Saunders are committed to providing the very best service, guidance and advice as the senior living sector expands and advances to meet this challenge.
We can act as lead consultant or as a member of a team to offer and strengthen relationships within a design consortium. Working towards the same vision with common goals, we feel that projects benefit from a team approach, in which everyone on the project team is held equally responsible for the quality and success of the project.
