Insights & Solutions

Webinar
January 2023 Webinar

This webinar offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to hear from an internationally recognized titan in the field of environments for aging—Dr. Margaret (Maggie) Calkins, and the recipient of 2022 Center for Health Design Changemaker Award—who will share her insights on how design of environments for people as they age has evolved and where the industry is headed.    

Webinar
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!  

Workshop
August 2022 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.

Webinar
July 2022 Webinar

 This webinar delves into the critical role sound plays in promoting a healthy environment and considers important questions to ask when designing or updating environments for people as they age. The speakers will also share insights gleaned from their applied research to promote health and wellbeing for aging populations (especially those with dementia) and their caregivers. Stay tuned!  

Webinar
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.  

Webinar
February 2022 Webinar

It reflects the coordinated and on-going efforts of a team of individuals to advance it from its initial stage -- as an AIA Design for Aging Knowledge Community white paper to push for revisions to the Americans’ with Disabilities Act – to a two-phase, comparative analysis study of elders living in nursing homes, and then to efforts to get the results included in revised codes and guidelines.

Workshop
April 2021 Workshop
The Workshop 

As individuals age, physical, mental, and societal challenges become more prevalent. This intensive one-day virtual workshop explores those challenges and discusses programming and design interventions that can assist people (and caregivers). Expert faculty will present case studies and examples that integrate architecture, design and technology into living environments that are not only safe, but foster wellness and longevity.

Webinar
March 2021 Webinar

This engaging webinar 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.  

Workshop
September 2020 Workshop
The Workshop

 

In this workshop, expert faculty will share current physical, mental and societal challenges posed when individuals age, discuss programming and design interventions that can assist people (and their care givers) with those challenges, and present case studies and examples that integrate architecture, design and technology into healthy, safe living environments.
