EFA: Breaking Bad: Resident-Centered Regulatory Improvements

Environments for Aging Conference: Breaking Bad: Resident-Centered Regulatory Improvements
Savannah, Georgia
Co-presenting with Skip Gregory and Steve Lindsey

The Facility Guidelines Institute has championed the creation of the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities, which provides a resource for the development of person-centered long-term care environments. The Guidelines support innovative change in long-term care settings; foster positive outcomes for residents, families, and staff; and provide an alternative to current licensing codes, currently referenced and/or adopted by numerous states. In this presentation, a designer, a provider, and a former authority having jurisdiction will provide an overview of the revised Guidelines, highlight changes and updates, and share critical information for understanding the importance of the Guidelines to providers, regulators, and designers.
