Intergenerational Living for All—Findings, Insights, and Best Practices from the SAGE-AIA Design for Aging Joint Intergenerational Task Force

Sunday, April 14 | 3:15-4:15pm | Ballroom B

Incorporating intergenerational design and programming is a fast-moving trend in senior living and provides a market advantage to owners and developers. However, traditional senior living design often falls short of fostering genuine intergenerational connections. In response, designers, developers, and operators are adopting diverse approaches to embrace this trend. This presentation will present the findings, insights, and best practices from the SAGE-AIA Design for Aging Joint Intergenerational Task Force based on a recent survey and discussion with their members. The presentation will highlight communities, both domestic and international, that incorporate the best practices in intergenerational design and operations and provide actionable takeaways for attendees.
