Environments for people as they age have been evolving for decades. However, the COVID pandemic exposed the existing fault lines of our current offerings in senior living environments. This engaging virtual panel will bring together a diverse group of industry thought leaders to explore where these challenges exist and how the built environment, technology, community, and innovative new models could reshape the future of health, wellness and how and where we will age.
