The institutions designed for protection, care and treatment of the elderly and vulnerable in our communities have revealed their shortcomings. Isn’t this a good time to seriously reconsider their design?

Long-term care: failure to thrive

As wave after wave of the pandemic surges through the US, Canada and the UK, an outsized proportion of deaths (42% or more) have occurred in long-term care facilities. The institutions designed for protection, care and treatment of the elderly and vulnerable in our communities have revealed their shortcomings. Isn’t this a good time to seriously reconsider their design?

Join us on Wednesday, February 24 at 12:00 PM EST/5:00 GMT for a webinar and open discussion about how we got here, what needs to happen now, and what the long-term care facilities of the future should look like.

Facilitated by Irving Stackpole, with architect Kevin Kozak, and Garth Johnson of  Cutler Associates.

Most of the nursing homes in the United States were built between 1965 in 1975 and they are showing their age! In 1965 45% percent of the population smoked, a new car cost $1,000.00 and only 9.4% of the population was over 65 years of age. Long-term care facilities that were designed in 1965 were built for people who were born in the 1890s, and those who designed them were born between 1915 and 1925. The concepts and cultural expectations of the designers and the consumers were very different from today.

Fast forward to 2020, and the 65+ population is 16.4% and growing quickly, in part because of healthy changes in behaviors – fewer people smoke, more people exercise and many of us are watching our diets. Chronic diseases associated with aging are now far more prevalent than in the past because more of us are living into old age. But the buildings that were designed in the 1960s and 70s don’t accommodate these changes; in fact, accommodating today’s elders in yesterday’s facilities is truly fitting a round peg in a square hole. Add to this the contemporary, painful experience of the coronavirus pandemic, and you have the perfect environment for incubating and spreading deadly contagion.

Now is the time to completely rethink long-term care facility design. Join us for the beginning of a demanding and lengthy conversation – one that’s desperately needed and very timely.
