ANNOUNCEMENT: Live Interview With Dr. Addie Abushousheh – How Can We Create the Most Supportive Living Environments For Older Adults?

The Living to 100 Club radio show will interview Dr. Addie Abushousheh, an expert in supportive environments for older adults, at 2 pm PT on 17 January 2020, on the Voice America Health and Wellness Channel, VoiceAmericaHealth.com.

During the show, we'll take an in-depth look at how environments should be designed when accounting for normal age-related changes, as well as how to create the most suitable settings for individuals whose cognition is in sharp decline.

We'll explore the current design trends in a variety of settings, including residential, skilled and assisted living, and rehabilitation, along with specialty environments such as adult daycare and hospices.

We'll investigate what the specific features of health care environments are that help to reduce impairment and which design features actually disable older people, rather than assist them in those settings.
