Senior Living Conference

Exploring New Ideas in the Care and Accomodation of Seniors

For the past three decades, Horst Construction has been a leader in the construction of Senior Living facilities, as well as an advocate for change in producing homelike spaces for our seniors.

In the spring of 2001 Horst Construction began hosting an annual Senior Living Conference. The goal of this conference is to help Senior Living decisions makers stay on top of the newest trends and most promising changes within the realm of senior housing.

During the conference, nationally acclaimed guest speakers present an in-depth look at the Senior Living industry while addressing topics such as:

  • Accommodations: Planning and developing housing styles seniors desire
  • Amenities: Catering to the senior lifestyle
  • Benefits of renovating old housing to meet the popular new trend
  • How Culture Change is affecting Senior Living medical care
  • How to successfully market your Senior Living housing
  • And much more.

Each conference takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, complete with breakfast and lunch, where attendees are encouraged to break into smaller groups, discuss new topics and learn the best practices that have helped other communities improve and grow.

Culture Change

Giving Seniors Privacy and Independence in a Home-like Atmosphere

Nursing Homes and Retirement Villages constructed decades ago are losing ground to an exciting trend in Senior Living called Culture Change – a popular alternative to traditional methods of Senior Care and housing.

Culture Change
Culture Change is a term used to describe new types of living conditions that allow residents to enjoy a “home-like” atmosphere of independence and privacy.

The housing structure of Culture Change takes shape as individual homes, cottages or apartments, often times located on beautiful campuses complete with social centers. Culture Change is also being realized in older facilities undergoing renovations to create “pods” where residents maintain independence with private bedrooms and bathrooms, while enjoying the social aspects of a shared living room and kitchen.

For seniors requiring help with daily chores or medical attention, Culture Change has reinvented the idea of “assisted living”, transforming it into a private “house call” where health care professionals visit individual living areas to distribute medicine and care. In conjunction, many Senior Living campuses provide customized daily living services, such as cooking and cleaning, directly in the resident’s living space.

Horst Construction – Improving the Quality of Life
Over the past several years, Horst Construction has helped many Senior Living clients analyze the process of adopting Culture Change for their properties. We can help you, too.

Culture Change begins with an analysis of your existing facility or new property. From there we’ll work with architects to develop private housing that will assist in change. From renovations to new construction, our insight and craftsmanship will result in excellent, home-like living spaces that will attract clients and improve everyone’s quality of life.
