The Center for Health Design: Continuum of Care Workshop
Wednesday, April 21st, 2021
Pope’s very own Senior Planner & Senior Interior Designer, Jill Schroeder, was on a panel of experts for The Center for Health Design’s workshop: Design for Healthy Aging: Solutions Across the Continuum of Care.
The focus of the conversations was how designers and providers have navigated current day challenges, and how they continue to advance healthy aging throughout the continuum of care and living environments.
A theme that resonated through the workshop was how the environment could take on even more of an active role in promoting healthy aging and the healing process, and creating a sense of “Continuum of Living in Places”.
