Housing for the country’s aging population is a critical societal need that is leading to the development of dynamic senior living facilities. From independent living, to assisted living and skilled nursing, many senior living communities are offering a variety of services and amenities to meet residents’ specific needs. As a result, senior living developments are subject to varying code requirements, often dependent on the type of housing, services, and amenities provided for residents. Understanding these requirements is crucial for achieving code compliant buildings that also provide holistic housing options for the senior population.
