This session was originally presented at the 2017 Environments for Aging Conference.
Building upon the success of a previous presentation, this session provides an in-depth analysis of the link between environmental aspects and operational efficiencies in long-term care settings. Many communities struggle with existing care environments for older adults that are outdated and do not support contemporary operational models. Yet numerous designs (e.g., household/neighborhood models) have been claimed as complete solutions for the issues faced by care providers. The success of innovative layouts are dependent on an integrative design process. This presentation offers participants an understanding of trends from an operational and physical environment perspective that are critical to ensure the ongoing vitality of your community.
