With two exciting opportunities ahead, this fall is gearing up to be an exciting one for IAHSA members interested in innovative design for ageing.

IAHSA just opened the call for entries process for our 2011 International Design for the Ageing Programme.   Held every other year, the Programme is an international survey and exhibit that highlights the latest trends and state-of the art technologies used  in senior living design.  These trends are identified by a multinational, multidisciplinary team from among design projects submitted by members of IAHSA’s Global Ageing Network.

The 2007 and 2009 editions of the International Design for the Ageing Programme led to exciting findings that will be featured during the IAHSA/AIA Study Tour of the United States, to be held 9-15 October, 2011.  The tour will allow participants to visit communities in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland that have incorporated these trends in their day-to-day operations and will focus on exploring the trends in care provision that incorporate the changing environment and consumer demands.  The tour schedule has been timed to coincide with the IAHSA Global Ageing Conference/LeadingAge Annual Meeting, where the findings of this year’s Design for the Ageing Programme results will be presented in a forum where designers and aged care providers worldwide can share innovations in senior living design and programming.

Do not miss out on the opportunity to participate in these programs.  Submit your proposal and sign up for the tour today!
