Living Forward: Housing for Empowered Aging



Session 1: A Day in the Life, Lessons Learned from An Architect Turned Resident

Steve Leone, Principal, Spiezle Architectural Group

Steve will share the lessons learned in his 24 hours Day In The Life as a skilled nursing home resident. Observations will span from the emotional reactions he felt to feedback he gleaned from residents. He will highlight design standards that can be improved upon. He will also detail his observations on the impact caregivers and culture have on nurturing aging as a natural continuation of life.

Playing the role of a skilled nursing home resident, the architect assumed several physical limitations and spent 24 hours experiencing the building and delivery of care from a resident’s point of view.


Session 2: How to Run a Senior Village

Julie Dalton, Riverdale Senior Services; Tina Serota, Village by the Shore

The National Village Movement is a growing nationwide trend of grassroots organizations that develop creative strategies to address local needs. The session will address the various village movement program models, highlight the key steps to establishing a village, and will present the lessons learned from nearly 10 years of village operation.
