Sunrise teams with HGTV’s Henderson on design tips for seniors

Sunrise Senior Living has partnered with designer Emily Henderson, host of HGTV’s Secrets From a Stylist, on a campaign to educate its assisted living residents on design and aging, according to a company announcement.

Henderson will educate Sunrise’s residents and their families to design their Sunrise suites in ways “that reflect their interests and personal histories,” the company said.

"A Sunrise principle of service is to celebrate the individuality of every resident and that is exactly what I try to do as a designer," Henderson said in a statement. "When someone walks into your room, it should feel like you."

Henderson released 10 preliminary tips on design for seniors, which included incorporating rounded furniture in resident rooms, choosing warm-toned wall colors for the aging eye and disguising handrails as chair rails.
