An in-depth look at the most innovative aged care facilities today

With the world's population aging at a rapid pace, there is a growing need for new ways to provide residential care for older people. Design for Aging explores some of the most successful examples of elderly housing today, focusing on integrating architectural considerations within an unwavering people-driven approach. Written by an international team of experts in aged care design, the book brings together twenty-six case studies from around the world, including Australia, Denmark, England, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States. The authors describe how each scheme has succeeded in addressing the needs of its residents regardless of wide variations in design, geography, cultural factors, medical needs, capital cost, and other factors. Clear, well-documented information for each facility includes:

  • Building descriptions and project data, and how the overall design fits within a geographical location

  • The type of community, including number of residents, ethnicity, and specific conditions such as dementia

  • How to apply universal design principles in different political, social, and regulatory contexts

  • How to create a sense of belonging and well-being for residents while building strong connections with the community at large

  • What makes a facility able to attract and retain high-quality caregivers

  • Environmental sustainability issues, plus indoor and outdoor spaces

Architects and interior designers as well as facility owners and caregivers will find Design for Aging an inspiring and practical guide on how to navigate the many factors involved in creating good designs for aged care environments.

NEW GUIDES FROM WILEY EXPLORE THE FUNDAMENTALS OF ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN FOR AN AGING POPULATION

An estimated 76 million Americans classified as baby boomers are approaching retirement age and will face age-related decisions in the next few years.  One of the key decisions is where and how they will be comfortable and independent in a residence that will meet their needs over time, and as their lives evolve.  Interior designers, architects, and builders are increasingly asked by clients to design homes to allow for adaptation over time or retrofit existing structures for aging residents with new needs.  John Wiley & Sons, a leading publisher in architecture and design, is releasing two new titles that help professionals understand how to design and create effective spaces and environments for the elderly and aging. 

The first title, DESIGN FOR AGING: International Case Studies of Building and Program (April 2012; $85.00), takes an in-depth look at 25 of the most innovative, contemporary examples of aged care facilities that exist today.  The book focuses on integrating architectural considerations within an unwavering people-driven approach. Written by an international team of experts in aged care design, they bring together case studies from around the world, including Australia, Denmark, England, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States. The authors describe how each scheme has succeeded in addressing the needs of its residents regardless of wide variations in design, geography, cultural factors, medical needs, capital cost, and other factors. Clear, well-documented information for each facility includes:

  • Building descriptions and project data, and how the overall design fits within a geographical location
  • The type of community, including number of residents, ethnicity, and specific conditions such as dementia
  • How to apply universal design principles in different political, social, and regulatory contexts
  • How to create a sense of belonging and well-being for residents while building strong connections with the community at large
  • What makes a facility able to attract and retain high-quality caregivers
  • Environmental sustainability issues, plus indoor and outdoor spaces

The second title, LIVABLE COMMUNITIES FOR AGING POPULATIONS: Urban Design for Longevity (May 2012; $80.00), provides architects and designers with critical guidance on urban planning and building design that allows people to age in their own homes and communities. The focus is on lifelong neighborhoods, where healthcare and accessibility needs of residents can be met throughout their entire life cycle.  Written by M. Scott Ball, a Duany Plater-Zyberk architect with extensive expertise in designing for an aging society, this important work explores the full range of factors involved in designing for an aging population—from social, economic, and public health policies to land use, and business models. Ball examines in detail a number of case studies of communities that have implemented lifelong solutions, discussing how to apply these best practices to communities large and small, new and existing, urban and rural. LIVABLE COMMUNITIES FOR AGING POPULATIONS also includes coverage of:

  • How healthcare and disability can be integrated into an urban environment as a lifelong function
  • The need for partnership between healthcare providers, community support services, and real-estate developers
  • How to handle project financing and take advantage of lessons learned in the senior housing industry
  • The role of transportation, access, connectivity, and building diversity in the success of lifelong neighborhoods  

Architects, urban planners, urban designers, and developers, as well as facility owners and caregivers, will find these new releases instructive, inspiring and practical on how to navigate the many factors involved in creating good designs for aged care environments. These books also include a wealth of pertinent information for public health officials working on policy issues for aging populations.
