Hoffman Gives a “How To” in Renovating Senior Living Facilities
Experts present to senior living providers at annual conference

(Appleton, WI) Hoffman Planning, Design & Construction, Inc. director of field operations Terry Ellenbecker and president and director of architectural services Miles Girouard, will discuss proven ways senior living providers can renovate their facilities on a budget during the 2013 Wisconsin Assisted Living Association (WALA) Spring Conference. The 18th annual conference will take place at the Kalahari Resort & Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells March 19-21.

During the presentation, “Renovating on a Budget: A ‘How-To’ Session,” Ellenbecker and Girouard will share practical ideas on cost-effective ways to renovate a senior care facility and examine some of the common remodeling challenges providers face. “When you consider the budget constraints many providers must deal with, designing and building a new facility isn’t always a realistic option,” Ellenbecker stated. “Our goal is to share ideas and examples of successful renovations that were completed within a defined budget, support the person-centered model of patient care, and kept the provider competitive in the market.”

With more than 45 years of combined industry experience, Ellenbecker and Girouard are experts in developing and implementing cost-effective ideas that can significantly upgrade a senior living facility. “Involving administrators and staff at the start of the process and throughout the renovation is key,” Girouard stated. “This constant communication ensures we are meeting staff and resident needs and staying within budget while creating an inviting, home-like person-centered environment.”

Hoffman is a nationally recognized leader in senior housing planning, architecture, and construction and designed and built the first two Green House® Homes in the state of Wisconsin, which are located at Lutheran Homes of Oshkosh’s Eden Meadows campus.

WALA is the premier and largest statewide association for Wisconsin's assisted living industry.
