    Course description:

    Join us to review lessons learned from the post-occupancy evaluation of an award-winning skilled care community. We will discuss the impact of feedback on future design decisions, including application to a subsequent full continuum of care community. This presentation will showcase the collaborative effort between a provider and design team to improve the physical environment, offering the best resident outcomes possible.

    Learning objectives: 

    • Learn the steps of the post-occupancy evaluation process.
    • Understand how feedback and evidence-based information can actively improve design, construction and operational techniques.
    • Gain exposure to the design objectives and innovations of two new senior living communities.
    • Learn the value of gathering direct feedback from residents, families and caregivers.
