Your input can help shape the future of Wesley Homes Des Moines!
When construction begins on the New Gardens building, part of its success will be the result of real feedback from current and future residents as well as the neighboring communities. The focus groups, held on March 16th and 17th at The Terrace, are open to the general public. We invite you to participate in one of our these groups and help shape the next generation of housing, programs, amenities and services at Wesley Homes Des Moines.
Plans for new spaces are based on current and future trends in senior living 一 the wants, needs and expectations of older adult populations 一 and Wesley Homes’ vision of retirement living for people who love life™. However, our plans are also shaped by what people in our communities want to see.
Wesley Homes has hosted focus groups in the past and has seen some really contemporary changes as a result. Last year, we listened to input for Bradley Park, our new Puyallup campus. Members of the community wanted the campus to offer multi-use spaces. Singular-use spaces can be too restrictive, and future residents wanted more flexibility in how they could utilize areas in the Lodge. For this reason, the educational theatre functions as both a classroom and a theatre. The Lodge at Bradley Park will also feature one and a half to two story spaces with large multi-floor windows because focus groups expressed a desire for more natural light inside the building.
When surveying for The Terrace renovations for the Des Moines campus, our focus groups agreed that it made more sense to have the fitness rooms on the lower level with the recreational areas and have the classroom on the ground level by the lobby and library. Wesley listened to the input and the results are exceptional; both the Zenith Fitness Center and the Olympic Learning Center see frequent use with regularly scheduled classes.
The focus groups are your opportunity to influence the future of retirement living in Des Moines. With such valuable input from our community, everyone benefits from your participation!
