Authored by the American Institute of Architects? Design for Aging Center, Design for Aging Post Occupancy Evaluations features well-researched post-occupancy evaluations for approximately forty senior living facilities previously featured in the AIA Design for Aging Review. Post-occupancy evaluations help determine if the facilities are truly providing an environment for the aging that enhances quality of life, minimizes their physiological ailments, and provide a caregiver?s working environment that allows for efficiency and efficacy. Each project in the book is evaluated based upon its overall design and care program, the relationship between the general environment and the general care program, obstacles and resolutions within the building program and/or the jurisdictional code requirements, and other salient factors.
