Assisted Living Communities

DPA’s senior living architects are committed to designing safe, aesthetically pleasing Assisted Living Communities where residents may enjoy an autonomous lifestyle while maintaining their dignity.

Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)

DPA specializes in the design and build of Continuing Care Retirement Communities that include Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing facilities within a single campus; allowing seniors to conveniently transition to the facility that best meets their needs, as their health situations change.

Independent Living

DPA's Independent Living designs include features and spaces that encourage seniors to stay healthy and active, and the benefits of having a community- while remaining independent.

Memory Care

DPA's Memory Care Facilities are designed to support the health, comfort and well-being of residents affected by neurological traumas and disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. Each memory care design incorporates elements that are proven to aid in residents treatment and care, such as: the racetrack floor plan and open kitchens.

Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF)

DPA advocates for the household model design, a small group of patient rooms surrounding a common area or great room with access to a resident kitchen, living room and dining area. This design allows the resident to feel comfortable in a more residential environment while recovering or receiving care.
