In early 2019, a multidisciplinary team of SAGE members completed a post-occupancy evaluation (POE) of LivGenerations Ahwatukee in Phoenix, Arizona to compare stated design goals against outcomes. Additionally, the POE measured how the building is functioning for both residents and staff. This research uses CITI protocols which ensures the highest level and rigor in research . Dive into the results of this POE as SAGE continues the tradition of helping providers and designers learn from winning projects.
• Understand why aesthetics aren’t the only measure of successful design projects.
• Learn how stated design goals translate into real-life operational and resident experiences.
• Hear from a team of multidisciplinary perspectives regarding how this building’s design features are working for the residents and staff, and where it’s not.
• Discover why the SAGE POE is a valuable tool for evaluating the design of a building in use.

Smart Buildings: The Internet of Things and Seniors
Thursday, December 12, 2019
Technology is revolutionizing the way we live, how we communicate, and how we care for ourselves and one another. The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing the way senior living communities are connecting, serving, and caring for their residents. Implemented well, technology strategies and products could keep seniors connected and safe and help alleviate some of the stress on the caregivers supporting them. However, there are concerns and pitfalls to avoid about the connectivity of all things. This session will highlight useful technology and applications for senior living, while keeping potential security and privacy issues in mind.
• Identify how products, technologies, and design strategies combine to make smart environments.
• Identify senior-specific care and community technologies and products.
• Assess the pitfalls and challenges of integrating these technologies into care design.
• Explore future resources for the implementation of smart technology strategies into care design.
