Updated: Nov 3, 2023

Panama is considered among the ideal countries for the retirement of retired people, since it has adequate economic indexes, good health system, accessibility to food products, tropical climate and offers an ease of residence to people coming from other countries, each factor adds up at the time of making the decision where to spend their retired days.

That is why today we want to share with you in this blog tips and factors to take into account when designing the areas where you will spend most of your time, where you feel with the desired comfort, have nice and cozy spaces to spend time outdoors if you wish, and like these many more that you will find below:

1. Accessibility and mobility: It is essential to ensure that facilities are accessible to the elderly. Ramps, elevators and wide corridors should be incorporated to allow safe and unobstructed movement.

2. Security: Retirement homes must have adequate security measures, such as alarm systems, adequate lighting, and controlled access to protect residents.

3. Outdoor spaces: It is important to have outdoor areas designed for leisure and recreation, such as gardens, walking trails, and outdoor seating areas.

4. Well-lit and ventilated interior spaces: Natural lighting and good ventilation are essential to create a comfortable and healthy environment for residents.

5. Common areas: Spaces such as living rooms, libraries, game rooms and community rooms are essential to foster social interaction among residents.

6. Sustainable design: As in all design, it is essential to contribute to the environment, with sustainable construction and energy efficiency to reduce environmental impact and operating costs in the long term.

It is important that the design of retirement homes is carried out in a careful and detailed manner, taking into account the needs and well-being of the residents to ensure that they enjoy a safe, comfortable and enriching environment at this stage of their lives. In addition, it is important to comply with local regulations and standards for the construction and operation of this type of facility.
