The Innovation Issue

Identifying design trends and emerging technologies

In this issue of Senior Living Executive, we explore innovative design and emerging technology and how it is changing not only senior living operations, but also the resident experience. You’ll read about the winners of the 2017 Argentum Senior Living by Design Awards program, which features best-in-class senior living community design and architecture. Additionally, you’ll see best practices and advice from four executive directors who’ve experienced a community renovation from start to finish.
