Later Living.

We work with retirement housing, assisted living providers and housing associations to create future-proofed homes and communities that are subtly designed to make life easier and safer, while still feeling warm and homely.

A discerning marketplace.

When designing accessible homes for older or disabled people, a safe and supportive environment can be achieved without compromising on the look and feel of a home.

From a subtle support in the shower, to storage that can be reached without awkward bending and stretching, to intuitive dementia design. This discerning marketplace is growing and demanding aspirational and future-proofed living options.

People want to see chic, modern designs that can adapt to their needs as time progresses. Retirement accommodation that is subtly designed to make life easier without drawing attention to the fact.

“It was important for us to select the right partner to design our bathrooms. We have plans to provide a large number of new homes over the next three years and we know that style is just as important to our residents as accessibility and ease of living. We know that our residents care needs can change over time and we wanted to create environments that could adapt to this - thankfully Motionspot understood this and delivered a fantastic final outcome. We are certain that our future residents are going to be blown away by overall look and feel of their brand new apartments.”

Siobhan Moore, Director of Development at Housing & Care 21.


Motionspot’s team of accessible designers are skilled at future-proofing retirement and extra care properties so they can adapt to suit the changing needs of residents as they age. Our range of removable grab rails and shower seats are particularly popular in this setting as they can be added as and when required.

Design guidance and specifications can also be provided in all communal areas of a development to ensure the right access is going to be delivered without compromising aesthetics. We also incorporate technology to enhance safety, independence, health and wellbeing.

We can create:

  • Future-proofed accessible bathrooms
  • Adaptable kitchens to meet changing needs of an ageing population
  • Homely, comfortable bedrooms with integrated accessible storage
  • Living spaces with dementia-friendly design
  • Communal living areas that promote wellbeing
  • External areas that encourage exercise and social interaction
  • Fully wheelchair accessible homes
