Grant Warner and Siobhan Farvardin Winfrey to speak at EFA Conference in Las Vegas

With less than a week ago, the Environments for Aging Expo and Conference is setting the stage for attendees to learn from experts on best practices, product innovations, design, caregiving, and operational strategies that meet the needs of our aging population. Educational programs are designed to provide attendees with just-breaking information, case studies, and research findings on myriad topics. These sessions are either research-focused and offer educational scenarios including case studies, design outcomes or processes, and exploration of timely topics.

Siobhan Farvardin Winfrey, AIA, LEED AP, Associate Principal, D2 Architecture along with Andrey Teleguz, Principal, Scopos Hospitality Group and John Rifkin, Senior Corporate Executive Chef, Morrison Community Living will be presenting session E24 Farm-to-Table Dining: Resident Engagement with Gardening and Culinary Exploration. This session will highlight opportunities for involving residents in the design and layout of farm-to-table dining concepts as well as the gardens that support them. Examples from communities that have successfully integrated this concept will be shared.

Grant Warner, AIA, LEED AP, and Teresa Whittington, RN, BSN, Vice President, Clinical/Continuum Operations, C. C. Young will be presenting session E35 The Vista at C. C. Young: A Case Study in Innovative Licensed Care.

The Vista is a new design concept in the senior living/senior care industry. As the once-clear lines between different levels of service and care have become less evident, this licensed-care building is designed with ultimate flexibility to adapt floors to changing market demands and resident needs. The tower will feature a state-of-the-art therapy suite, including aquatic therapy for both inpatient and outpatient recovery. This session will address the opportunities and challenges inherent in the development of a large-volume high-rise while highlighting the innovative features that will make this building a model for future licensed care in senior communities.
