Center For Senior Living Design In Social VR: During 2021 Environments for Aging Expo & Conference

Subscribe to Health Systems Chat!


Our 1st Getting-Older-In-VR Health Systems Chat in Social VR meetup! What is Senior Living Design? Can VR help? Join us in our new Center For Senior Living Design in Social VR (in social virtual reality, of course!). We all get older and eventually we need special spaces and services. SLD is the integration of landscaping, architecture, interior design, and technology to create environments and communities that are functional, efficient, and satisfying for seniors, their families, and staff. Senior Living Design reminds me of the best I've experienced in social VR: beautiful, navigable, and welcoming spaces filled with supportive, interesting and interested people. I've been impressed with how many happy, energetic, and engaged seniors I've met in social VR, many in their 60s, 70s, and 80s! We'll explore Senior Living Design VR/AR angles, from immersive architectural walkthroughs to fighting isolation and loneliness with VR to innovative uses for augmented reality. Please join us to discuss important connections, ideas, and insights shared among senior living communities, both physical and virtual!

Our meetup in VR occurs during the Environments for Aging Expo in Chattanooga, Tennessee (above which we'll float during out event) but is unaffiliated with EFA. BTW, 2021 Argentum Senior Living Executive Conference & Expo occurs Sept 13-15.
