Recent SAGE Post-Occupancy Evaluations

For many years, results of the POEs were presented at the annual Leading Age conference. Recently, SAGE has partnered with the Environments for Aging conference to present its findings.

2017: City of Las Vegas

For the first time, instead of looking at a senior-care setting or building, the SAGE POE team evaluated the city of Las Vegas to determine how friendly it is for residents and visitors.

Of particular interest was the city’s accessibility, wayfinding, noise, signs, transportation, all the components of safety and security, and how easy is it for older adults to navigate around.
