Design for Memory Care: Removing Barriers to Achieve Person-centered Care!

Imagine if your challenges in creating person-centered environments were removed. Using evidence-based design principles to support your decisions as part of the planning and programming process is a practical way of supporting residents in existing and new settings.  This webinar will discuss various environmental challenges including fall risk, infection control, wayfinding, spatial relationships, access to the outdoors, lighting, incontinence and wandering.
These challenges will be reviewed in the context of the MMP Architects Design Guide for Long Term Care Homes 2017 Edition and the Facility Guidelines Institute’s Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities 2018 Edition. Additional resources will be shared to provide background and return on investment (ROI) data for solving your challenges!  ROI to be will be evaluated on a dollar basis, but will also address the intangible benefits that may result from utilizing an Evidence Based Design approach.  The goal is to provide tools that further the support for creating person-centered environments for our elders.
