Senior Living Design
Designing senior living with smart home technology in mind is only now becoming commonplace. Incorporation of integrated technologies into senior living design will make implementations easier to accomplish and will increase resident and family adoption. What are the future technologies that will improve the future senior living resident experience? How could these technologies impact care coordination, resident engagement, and operations such as sales and marketing? What sort of team will need to be in place to accomplish this vision, and how would it be organized at the local level? These questions and more will be discussed in this far-reaching discussion about the intersection of senior living design and smart home technology.

Designs for senior living are driven by the demographics of the consumer the industry is trying to attract. For example, trends in vertical design are driven by urban infill projects as well as retrofitting for the middle market. Additional trends include the use of pocket neighborhoods, designing for wellness, and the need to design for smart home technologies. This session will feature an overview of footprint planning megatrends, and what is driving them.

The impact of COVID-19 will be far-reaching, and nowhere will it be more visible than in the design of future senior living communities. Senior living design may now feature the ability to cordon off sections of a campus or building, solutions for easier social distancing, and separate mechanical and air conditioning/heating systems to localize ventilation. Secure fresh-air courtyards, staff accommodations, and dining concepts such as quick-serve venues and flexible configurations may become more important in future designs. This panel of designers and owner/operator development leads will discuss what you need to consider in your new builds and renovations projects in the aftermath of COVID-19.
