E1: Elevating Design for Seniors – Untapped Opportunities in the Built Environment
December 5, 20173:30 pm - 4:45 pm
Nancy Bastian; William P. Brown, Jr.; Christina Spangler; B. Scott Zuckerman
This session will look at how designing for seniors differs from designing for a younger population. Participants will learn how to ask more from their design team to create beautiful, functional facilities with low-turnover units that residents love and don’t want to leave. Concrete examples and tried and true interventions will be examined and discussed. Included in this conversation will be strategies for supporting the aging in place process to ensure residents can remain in their homes as long as possible. An architect, a lighting designer, a builder and an owner will be on hand for this informative workshop.
