Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center

The Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center is part of Senior Community Centers, a non-profit organization in San Diego whose mission is to: "End Senior Hunger and Poverty Through Innovative Solutions." The impact of the Wellness Center is keeping seniors healthy and independent by providing meals, case management, healthcare, mental health care, exercise, life-long learning that includes a cyber café, and a robust civic engagement program.

As a day use facility, the flooring needed to be durable and easily maintained, yet also provide aesthetic attributes for the staff and seniors using the facility. The designers at Smith Consulting Architects turned to Johnsonite's Optima 24" tiles for a solution.

"The Optima tiles allowed us to use vibrant colors to provide way finding and room designation throughout the facility," said Erica Hutchinson Roman, Interior Designer at Smith Consulting Architects. "It also provided a comfort level that would stand up to high foot and wheelchair traffic. Easily cleaned and maintained, with no waxing required were also a big selling point for selecting Optima for this facility."
