Course Description

It’s no secret that the senior living landscape is changing. Industry experts are exploring new CCRC models and intergenerational development opportunities. This session will highlight strategic partnerships, illustrating how unique collaborations, financing, and planning and design approaches represent the future of senior living. We will answer the question, how can a senior living community anchor a vibrant intergenerational development?

We will explore what defines a positive place experience and how to adjust your building or community to meet the goals. A Perspective Based Sensory Assessment (PBSA) tool will be shared to determine the sensory attributes present in your building or community and how to modify them to benefit everyone.

Promoting and supporting resident engagement in senior living is of vital importance. Well-designed amenity spaces have been a priority for the past few years—hospitality-inspired environments to encourage activity and engagement. Operations plays a key role in the success of these spaces. The staff’s understanding of how to encourage resident participation through planned activities or how to influence spontaneous interactions supports the desired vibrant and active lifestyle promoted by marketing. These spaces will be highlighted as a priority for countering social isolation and loneliness.
