    November 2022 Webinar

    This webinar will highlight research and design strategies to mitigate challenges to the aging eye and cognition. Presenters will explore how daylight and bright electric lighting is even more important, balanced with very low level, warm lighting at night. Think it’s a good idea to mimic trendy hospitality lighting in senior spaces? Think again. For health and safety, we need to dramatically change our design approach!

    July 2022 Webinar

    This webinar will discuss what we need to do in the built environment to promote brighter days and darker nights. The presenter will share the latest research in light science and will show examples of applications where a robust 24-hour light and dark scheme in numerous environments improved sleep, mood, and behavior in various older adult populations.

    August 2020 Webinar

    This webinar explores key design strategies and best practices for creating great environments for aging in place. From principles of universal design and biophilia to the role of technology and building materials, multiple elements of successful environments will be discussed. Presenters will also address some of the hurdles in creating effective environments for aging in place, including licensing and staffing, and will examine a case study of one operator’s unique approach. Participants will walk away from this session with more tools for creating environments for aging in place.
