Due to the open Q&A format of this webinar, participants will not earn AIA credit for participation. However, you will learn from some of the best, brightest, and most experienced great minds in the industry!
This is your opportunity to ask questions of three"sages" of SAGE- Maggie Calkins, Addie Abushousheh and Amy Carpenter. Each has deep knowledge of environments for older adults and individuals living with dementia, person-centered care, codes and guidelines, shared residential settings and home and community. In this unscripted session, we will respond to your questions on a wide array of topics, so come prepared with the questions you never get to ask in other webinars.
Dr. Margaret Calkins, EDAC, FGSA, is a SAGE founder and early pioneer of environments for individuals living with dementia. After running her own consulting firm and research institute, she headed the Elliot program in Health Care Design at Kent State University and has worked extensively with many foundations.
Ms. Amy Carpenter, AIA, LEEP AP was recently named a “Leader of Tomorrow” by Long Term Living, Amy has over 20 years of experience, with the past 15 years focused on senior living design. Amy is a member of the Health Care Committee of the International Code Council and is actively involved with the National Fire Protection Agency code revision process. Amy frequently speaks at conferences such as Environments for Aging, LeadingAge and Pioneer Network.
Dr. Addie Abushousheh is a gerontologist, researcher, and consultant for organizational and environmental development in long-term care. She explores cultural and bio-psycho-social perspectives, organizational structures and processes, physical environments, workforce models, and regulatory and financial frameworks in relation to decision making, resource management, and quality improvement. Addie was integrally involved in the creation of and on-going revisions to the FGI’s Guidelines for the Design of Residential Health, Care and Support Facilities.
Environments for Aging is introducing a new program to recognize the individuals who are advancing the design of senior living environments. The EFA Design Champions awards will honor those who have fought for design solutions that make a meaningful improvement in the lives of residents, staff, or the greater community.
Tell us about the people you’ve worked with in the past two years who were champions for design, who understood the difference it can make, and who lobbied for change.
Who on your leadership team rallied for a move away from an institutional setting and toward a household model of care, even if others were apprehensive? What member of your project team worked diligently to identify costs savings so important design solutions weren’t value engineered? Who collaborated closely with residents to identify their specific wants and needs or extended an ear to the local community to create innovative responses? Who challenged local codes or worked to improve regulations that restrict design possibilities?
Help us celebrate this industry’s achievements in pushing senior living design forward. The deadline is March 23. CLICK HERE to submit a nomination today.
The winners will be featured in the Summer 2018 issue of Environments for Aging and recognized during an awards luncheon at the 2019 EFA Expo & Conference.
