La Posada at Park Centre

Green Valley , Arizona

La Posada retained IPA to design three elements of their growing, continuing care retirement community:

La Perla Independent Living Apartments – Aging doesn’t mean giving up one’s sense of style. La Perla’s large vaulted ceilings, setback window openings, courtyards and plazas are all part of the Southwestern vernacular that makes desert living so inviting. Accessibility, easy-entry shower access and other supportive features are incorporated into the design, without compromising the qualities that make La Perla home.

La Via Memory Care Alzheimer’s Facility – Environment can have a significant impact on the wellbeing of those living with cognitive decline. Long hallways, dead-ends and other confusing features can spark emotional outbursts or raise fear of leaving one’s room.

For La Via Memory Care, IPA designed a more enabling environment. Resident bedrooms open directly into a homelike great room. Simply by opening the door, the resident is greeted by a welcoming social environment. What’s more, all areas accessible to residents are within their eyesight. As in a typical home, a kitchen serves as the hub of social activity. Residents also have access to the gardens, which provide a rich sensory experience and a sense of personal freedom.

Outside of resident’s rooms, “memory boxes” provide visual cues to help residents find their way. The mementos in these cases aid residents in their recall of people and relationships dear to them, reinforcing their sense of identity.

La Posada Aquatic Center – The La Posada Aquatic Center serves as a social and recreational magnet within the community. Designed with a desert resort feel, its facilities include a pool designed for swimming and aquatic therapies, a billiard and game room, and an outdoor lounge where residents can enjoy a cooling drink. The desert serves as an inspiring backdrop.
