Webinar: Beyond Aging in Place: Opportunities and Innovative Solutions through Universal Design

A vast majority of the design community embraces Universal Design as a concept – especially those in health and wellness industries – but true universal design implementation is challenging. What does Universal Design look like in practice? How can we move beyond the treatment of universal design as a compartmentalized approach to design for aging and accessibility?

In this presentation, two key thought leaders in the universal design arena will share expertise and insight around true and tangible universal design: what it means, what it looks like, and how to achieve it. The presenters will continue the conversation around expanding the traditional view of universal design, using an evidence-based approach, and will share case studies in a variety of scales and environments.

This webinar is the second presentation in a three-part series on universal design. Part 1: “To Age is Human: Universal Design Research and Trends” and is available On Demand on the CHD website here. Part 3 will be presented in late 2017/early 2018 by a panel of Universal Design experts. 

Learning Objectives

  • Expand the view of universal design beyond aging in place and accessible environments.

  • Understand how universal design supports sustainable design.

  • Explore examples of successful universal design through select case studies.

  • Discover opportunities to utilize tools that support universal design strategies.

Environments for Aging

Keynote Environments For Aging
Date: Sunday, April 19
Time: 3:15 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Jane M. Rohde, AIA, FIIDA, ACHA, AAHID, LEED AP, Green Globes Assessor, and Principal, JSR Associates Inc.

Jane Rohde champions a global cultural shift toward deinstitutionalized senior living facilities through her consulting, research, and advocacy, providing services for non-profit and for-profit developers, government agencies, as well as senior living and care providers. She also educates providers, regulators, and peers on senior living trends, programming, and design that supports and improves the lives of elders, and speaks internationally on these topics plus evidence-based design and sustainability.

Rohde sits on the Environmental Standards Council, part of The Center for Health Design, and is the former AAHID board of regents vice president. She played a significant role in the creation of the Facility Guidelines Institute’s Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities, covering the licensing of long-term care and related facility types. She founded and chairs the Senior Living Sustainability Guide committee, a group of volunteers that created a sustainability guide for senior living projects, which has been used in more than 10 countries. That includes China, where the guide was consulted in the creation of China Senior Care, the first residential senior care facility in that country that focuses on skilled nursing and adult day care.

 

Introducing the New FGI Guidelines for Residential Facilities
Date: Monday, April 20, 2015  
Time: 8:00 a.m.- 9:00 a.m.


Speakers:
Robert Mayer, President, Hulda B. & Maurice L. Rothschild Foundation
Steve Lindsey, CEO, Garden Spot Village
Jane Rohde, AIA, FIIDA, ACHA, AAHID, Principal, JSR Associates Inc.

The evolution of communities integrating person-centered care has significant implications for the design and construction of residential communities. One of the barriers to creating the person-centered built environment has been outdated or obsolete regulations, standards, and codes. The Facilities Guidelines Institute (FGI) has recently released a new set of minimum standards for design and construction of a wide range of person-centered/home-like long-term residential care and support facilities. Hear about this exciting new reference and the significant new standards, which will have an important impact on future long-term community design.

  • Learn about how the new guidelines for residential care were developed.
  • Identify different healthcare community types that are now specifically addressed in the guidelines.
  • Become an advocate for removing barriers to person-centered environments.
  • Understand the significant changes to existing standards and their applications.

This session will provide a dynamic discussion on sustainability and the lessons the rest of the world can teach the United States in sustainable planning of the future of health care. This session will enable attendees to:

  • Frame the right goals for successfully implementing sustainable design principles.
  • Recognize cultural aspects as part of the sustainable design process.
  • Discuss the importance of LCA and ROI.
