Bridgewater, NJ – To acknowledge how the Adult Day Center of Somerset County’s new design has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of New Jersey seniors and their facilities over the past decade, the Center presented SSP Architects with the Outstanding Community Partner Award at its year-end 11th Annual Generations Gala held at the Palace of Somerset.
SSP was recognized for helping the Center realize its vision of a new, engaging facility of its own. In addition, SSP was acknowledged for remaining partners with the Center in the years after the newly designed Center’s completion – providing advice and counsel as well as philanthropic support of their capital campaign and fundraising events.
Creating an adult day center environment where seniors feel welcomed and comfortable in a bright, airy setting is always a challenging design undertaking. That’s why it was extremely satisfying to hear Diann Robinson, Executive Director of the Adult Day Center of Somerset County, say, “We wanted it (the Center) to be warm, we wanted to bring nature in…SSP more than hit the mark. We have a beautiful facility; we feel like you’re at home.”
Since moving to its current location in Bridgewater, the Center has served up to 80 members a day and 250 families a year in a compassionate, respectful, dignified, and accepting environment. The Center’s Caregiver Support Group is open to Hunterdon County residents, as well residents throughout Northern New Jersey.
“SSP is so pleased that we achieved our goal of providing the Center’s clients with a comforting and welcoming feeling when they walked into the space,” said Tammy Stouchko, Principal at SSP Architects.
“When the members were there for the day, their families needed to know they were cared for and respected. The building needed to reflect that. It’s been gratifying to hear from both the seniors and their families that we brought this design vision to life,” said Marcus Rosenau, Principal at SSP Architects.
