The mission of the AIA Design for Aging (DFA) Knowledge Community is to foster design innovation and disseminate knowledge necessary to enhance the built environment and quality of life for an aging society. This includes relevant research on characteristics, planning and costs associated with innovative design for aging. In addition, DFA provides outcome data on the value of these design solutions and environments.
This project is a new 18-bed, assisted living/ memory care house in the midst of a larger CCRC that includes independent living, assisted living, and rehab and recovery. Completing the continuum of care, this project is an assisted living residence that stands as a home in physical form (and in meaning) for their residents requiring memory support. #DFA #DFAR12 #CaseStudies #BestPractices #CohenRosenHouse #THWDesign #DesignforAgingKnowledgeCommunity #SpecialProjects
