Designing for The Third Age

There is no one path or direction for the diverse ways in which we grow older. Our physical needs change, but for many the desire for new adventures and continuous discovery continues unabated. Shaw Contract is dedicated to understanding the unique needs of Senior Living Communities. Designs rooted in evidence-based research create environments that support the diverse needs of residents, families and caregivers. Beautiful, functional spaces that marry durable and easily maintained products to an aesthetic that energizes, soothes and performs to the standards demanded by diverse needs from independent and assisted living to skilled nursing and memory care allow us to design for the third age of living.
