What You Can Expect at The Environments for Aging Expo and Conference 2018

May, 2019

The Environments for Aging Expo and Conference is the largest show in North America dedicated to providing the latest strategies, products and ideas in design for the aging population.  The three-day event in April provides networking opportunities and the chance to learn the latest innovations and best practices in senior friendly design for long-term and residential care settings. Five types of educational opportunities are available at the Environments for Aging Expo and Conference:

Community Tours:  

These walk-throughs provide real-life examples of incorporating best practice techniques, new enrichment opportunities, and memory & dementia care focused design. Located in Savannah, Georgia, this year’s tours include a one of a kind walking tour of historic Savannah, SCAD Museum of Art, The Marshes of Skidaway Island and a tour of Savannah’s City Plan.

Workshops:

This year’s Environments for Aging Expo and Conference workshops include Dementia Capable Care which offers a two-fold look at memory care design and the AAHID Exam Prep Workshop – the only accreditation that tells colleagues, clients and potential employers that your education and experience in healthcare interior design distinguishes your qualifications.

Conference Sessions:

These sessions provide Environments for Aging Expo and Conference attendees with just-breaking information, case studies and research findings. The sessions are broken into the following tracks: Trends & Transformation, Supporting & Improving Memory Care, Guidelines, Codes & Standards, Innovation, Design Showcase, Design for Health & Wellness, Case Studies and Deep Dives.

Keynotes: 

This year the keynote speakers for the Environments for Aging Expo and Conference include Ashton Applewhite on How Ageism Warps our View of Long Life, Ryan Frederick on Environments for the Generations and Jennifer Kovacs Silvis on Wandering Through Memory Care – What’s Next on the Horizon.
