David A. Green Memorial Award For Advancing the Humanization Of Elder Environments
CLICK HERE for information about the 2016 Award Recipient
David Green, a monumental force and radical visionary, revolutionized the way we think, feel, operate, and design environments for older adults. He is credited with developing the first households in long-term care within the United States based upon innovative approached for memory care as well as the foundation established by OBRA ’87.
To honor David’s vision and continue this important work, an award named the David A. Green Memorial Award has been established to encourage, inspire, recognize and subsidize the innovative projects and actions of providers, researchers, and designers that improve the lives and environments of older adults. In addition to recognition for being an industry leader in advancing the humanization of elder environments, the 2017 award winner will also receive a $500 award for use in furthering their project's mission.
Because David was one of the founding members of SAGE, and was instrumental in creating the major principals that guide it today, the Society for the Advancement of Gerontological Environments (SAGE) is the administrator of the award. Applications will be accepted through April 20, 2017.
Submissions may be either a proposed project or activity or one that has already been implemented that can be further disseminated and documented.
Proposals should exemplify one or more of the following SAGE principals and values related to the built environment:
