25 Good Reasons to Come Out of Your Room

All owners, operators, and designers understand the importance of finely designed apartments. But the real magic of living in a senior community is socialization and the myriad moments of laughter, exercise, worship, conversation, debate, and even gossip that mark the difference between joyful longevity and wasting away. Where does this happen? What does it look like? This presentation will scrutinize a plethora of venues as well as proven and creative ways to lure residents out of their rooms and into public spaces, all designed to bring good spirits and good health to residents in all levels of care.

Learning Objectives

• Learn about operational and design adjustments that inspire residents to pursue a richer social life outside of their rooms.
• Identify ways to modify the design of common areas (interior and exterior) that encourage socialization.
• Establish the importance of making these adjustments for the well-being of the residents, staff, and residents’ family members.
• Reinforce the benefits of the active and engaged community through design case studies.
