    Description:

    Designing Dementia Capable Environments: Marrying Health, Safety and Wellness - Part II offers a high-level look at memory care design. The course will build off the information shared in Part I (offered as a SAGE webinar in June, 2020) in understanding how chronic, progressive dementias impact a person’s ability to function. This will enable you to make informed design decisions when helping owners, operators and developers create environmental supports that will best serve the person with dementia and those who care for them. These principles align with the SAGE Principles Related to Gerontological Environments.

    Learning Objectives:

      • Learn the impact of environmental design on the functional ability of persons as they age with and without dementia.
      • Identify important design elements that support the remaining abilities of persons in all stages of dementia.
      • Have a better understanding of how the Dementia Capable Care Holistic Framework can inform design.
      • Discuss outcomes of selected design components for senior living and memory care environments.

      Notes from the Field: The 2020 SAGE Post-occupancy Evaluation

      Tuesday, October 27, 2020

      1 pm ET, noon CT, 11 am MT, 10 am PT

      This course is AIA approved for one Learning Unit (LU).

      Course Description

      In early 2020, a multidisciplinary team of SAGE members completed a post-occupancy evaluation (POE) of Menno Haven Rehabilitation Center --the first WELL-certified skilled nursing project in the world and one of Environments for Aging magazine’s 2019 Design Showcase winners--in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania 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.

      Learning Objectives

      • Understand why aesthetics aren’t the only measure of successful design projects.
      • Learn how stated design goals translate into real-life operational and resident / guest experiences.
      • Hear from a team of multidisciplinary perspectives regarding how this building’s design features are working for the residents / guests 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.

Additionally, the POE measured how the building is functioning for both residents and staff. This research uses CITI protocols, which ensure the highest level and rigor in research. Learn how this rehabilitation center centralized their food service operation and utilized their WELL Building Standard certification to provide the highest quality culinary experience for their residents and their staff.

      Learning Objectives

      • Discover how Menno Haven centralized their food service operation on their campus and the benefits and challenges of centralization.
      • Understand how operating multiple food venues doesn’t always translate into more FTE
      • Learn about cooking technology like Sous Vide and Rationale ovens.
      • See why the WELL Building standard has a huge impact on campus dining.
