SAS Architects & Planners (http://www.sasarch.com) -- a full-service firm specializing in senior living, healthcare and commercial use projects -- has been retained to design “small house” eldercare housing for Victorian Village (http://tinyurl.com/79g6mx6 ), a senior living community in Homer Glen, Ill.    

SAS will design three residences to be built on the property by the end of 2013. Two single-story residences will house 10 seniors each, while the third, a two-story residence, will house 30 seniors. All residents will have access to skilled nursing services while they enjoy private bedrooms and bathrooms, plus shared common living, kitchen and dining areas.

“We’re proud to be among the first senior living communities in Illinois to invest in the ‘small house’ concept -- which essentially is a skilled nursing home situated in a residential setting,” said Ray Hemphill, Executive Vice President – Project Development for Providence Life Services (http://www.providencelifeservices.com) which owns and operates Victorian Village. “Originated by a geriatrician, the ‘small house’ eldercare concept has been operating for about 10 years in other parts of the United States. Residents, family and staff all report high levels of satisfaction with the shared living arrangement.”

“Victorian Village will be the latest in more than 120 eldercare projects, representing the entire continuum of care, designed by SAS since the firm began in 1954,” said SAS President Steven E. Sussholz, AIA. SAS has designed nursing homes, sheltered care, assisted living, supportive living, congregate care, dementia care and independent living facilities throughout the United States.

Victorian Village is a close-knit community of senior housing options that has served Homer Glen and surrounding communities since 1999. Its 18-acre campus features graduated care living options ranging from town homes for ages 55+ (The Victorian Courts) to independent living (The Grand Victorian) and assisted living (The Victorian Inn).
