The Design for Aging Committee begin the new year with a tour of a community in Los Altos. The Terraces at Los Altos, is an ABHOW (American Baptist Homes of The West) community. Designed by D2 Architecture, the building to be toured has Memory Support, Assisted Living and a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF). The focus will be on the SNF which is the only “neighborhood style” design currently in the Bay Area. The rooms are grouped into 14 bed and 16 bed neighborhoods where the rooms open out into a common living/dining/country kitchen area. The building is new and also in a well-executed craftsman style.
The tour will be conducted by Russell Mauk, ABHOW Vice President for Design, Construction and Redevelopment.
