Commented on Karam Senior Living 3 months, 1 week ago
An important part of planning for successful senior living is resilience: I.E. the ability to for the living space to function even when something goes wrong. As a paramedic, I spend a lot of time in senior living facilities, and the better designed ones feature two elevators. This way when one is broken or needs to be serviced, mobility-challenged residents can use the other elevator. Relying on a single elevator is a major design flaw that can trap residents in/out of their apartments when it inevitably fails.
