Design for Healthy Aging: Solutions Across the Continuum of Care Workshop - Day 2

August 2022

The Workshop


As individuals age, physical, mental, and societal challenges become more prevalent. This intensive virtual workshop explores those obstacles and discusses programming and design interventions that can assist individuals and care givers. Expert faculty will present examples that integrate architecture, design and technology into living environments that are not only safe, but foster wellness and longevity.

Together, faculty and attendees will explore gaps in the current system and consider the latest in design thinking for healthy aging in various settings across the continuum of care. Our experts will also identify state-of-the-art best practices and possible new solutions that enhance access to nature, engagement with technology, resilience, and meaning and purpose. Through presentations, case studies and panel discussions, attendees will gain new insights, have opportunities to pose questions to workshop faculty, and interact with fellow attendees in fun and innovative ways.
