The Designers Group is Redefining Senior Care Through Innovative Design

Updated on August 30, 2023

The Plaza Rehab and Nursing Center, a project undertaken by The Designers Group (TDG), addresses the pressing issue of the aging population challenge in the healthcare industry. With a forward-thinking approach to healthcare design, TDG has created a facility that not only caters to the specific needs of seniors but also enhances their living experience. The Plaza sets a new standard for high-quality senior care, making a significant impact on the industry.

Meeting the unique requirements of seniors while ensuring their comfort and well-being is a significant challenge for healthcare providers worldwide. TDG confronts this challenge by integrating advanced technology, upscale hospitality interiors, and thoughtful design principles that prioritize functionality and aesthetics.

Safety and accessibility are top priorities in TDG’s designed facilities. The Plaza features wide corridors, handrails, and slip-resistant flooring to enable seniors to navigate the space safely and reduce the risk of accidents. The layout is carefully designed to ensure wheelchair accessibility, with strategically placed seating areas throughout the facility.

Creating a sense of community and promoting social engagement among residents is crucial at The Plaza. Well-appointed common areas and gathering spaces encourage social interactions, fostering a supportive and vibrant atmosphere. By providing opportunities for residents to connect and engage with one another, The Plaza addresses the issue of isolation and loneliness commonly experienced by seniors.

Advanced technology plays a vital role in addressing the challenges associated with an aging population. The Plaza is equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring systems that enhance safety and well-being.

In addition to its healthcare functionality, The Plaza incorporates upscale hospitality interiors. TDG’s expertise in the hospitality industry is evident in the elegant design elements and luxurious finishes throughout the facility. By incorporating elements typically found in high-end hotels, The Plaza creates an ambiance that promotes comfort, relaxation, and indulgence, setting a new standard for senior care.

Biophilic design principles also play a crucial role at The Plaza, contributing to the well-being of residents. The presence of natural elements, such as plants and access to outdoor spaces, creates a soothing and calming environment. Research has shown that exposure to nature can reduce stress levels and promote a sense of tranquility. By integrating biophilic elements, TDG prioritizes the holistic well-being of residents, recognizing the importance of nurturing both the body and the mind.

The Plaza Rehab and Nursing Center, designed by The Designers Group, offers an exceptional solution to the challenges posed by an aging population in the healthcare industry. By incorporating advanced technology, safety considerations, community-building spaces, and upscale hospitality interiors, TDG has created a facility that not only meets the demands of seniors but exceeds expectations. The Plaza serves as an inspiring example of how innovative design can revolutionize senior living, providing a blueprint for the future of healthcare design. For more information, please visit us at
