Interior Design Firm, DesignPoint, to Re-Design Bensalem Continuing Care Retirement Community
The Lehigh Valley’s only stand alone interior design firm landed a contract for the renovation of Wood River Village in Bensalem, PA. Wood River Village is an Independent LifeCare Continuing Care Retirement Community situated on 20 acres in Bucks County. The community was originally built in the 1980s and is currently under contract to be acquired by Juniper Communities by the end of 2016.
Based in Bloomfield, NJ Juniper Communities is a family owned company with multiple senior living properties, including assisted living facilities, memory care communities and skilled nursing facilities. Juniper Communities’ properties are located Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
Juniper Communities plans on completely renovating Wood River Village in several phases. Phase I will include an overhaul of their main building and town center that includes the lobby, sitting area, health center and common areas for residents, guests and visiting families. The project will also feature a re-design of a 5,000 SF roof top deck area. The first phase of renovations are anticipated to start in early 2017.
The community will be rebranded as Juniper Village of Bucks County and with the renovations it is expected to be one of the more modern senior living communities in lower Bucks County and Northeast Philadelphia.
DesignPoint was selected for the project due to their experience in senior living. Juniper Communities has contracted DesignPoint in the past to work on four of their communities in Florida, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. With 20 years experience, DesignPoint has led numerous interior design projects across the United States for independently owned and corporately held communities, and is one of the most experienced interior designers for senior living interior architecture, space planning and design.
DesignPoint recently won an award for a senior living project for Watermark Communities in Pella, IA. The award was presented by Environments for Aging (EFA), a leading industry magazine that covers current obstacles and solutions in the design of senior environments, how to implement cost-effective design solutions, the future of senior living, and much more.
DesignPoint is also an active member of LeadingAge. LeadingAge is an association of 6,000 not-for-profit organizations dedicated to making America a better place to grow old.
