ROSEVILLE, Minn. -- A Southwestern decorating theme would seem natural for a health care complex in Sun City, Ariz. But interviews with the people who were going to live there showed that they had other ideas.
''It turns out they were from out East and they didn't want Southwest. They wanted to bring part of their home with them,'' said Charles Shuster, executive vice president of Arthur Shuster Inc., which handled the design job in 1984.
Such interviews help ASI design and furnish nursing homes and assisted living facilities that feel more like a home than an institution.
