SHOW SCHEDULE

Hear about the Latest Trends and Best Practices in Designing for Senior Care Environments

This three-day event delivers design strategies for senior living, through educational conference sessions, deep dive workshops, and community tours. These up-close tours offer a look at current design strategies incorporated at local CCRC facilities. See first-hand new strategies being put in place in senior environments.

The Environments for Aging conference program is a comprehensive offering of exclusive content, carefully planned to provide attendees with practical applications and best practices in the design of senior care environments. The sessions are either research-focused or offer other educational scenarios including case studies, CCRC workshops, design outcomes or processes, and exploration of timely topics. Attendees will enjoy information-rich presentations in which they’ll gather invaluable information.

Take advantage of our receptions to network with peers, exhibitors, and others in the industry sharing design ideas, product recommendations, and general discussion with like-minded individuals invested in senior care design.

The final 2023 schedule is still being finalized. Please see below for the agenda from EFA 2022.
