Home Press Release J+J Flooring Group announces new partnership, The Center for Health Design

Dalton—J+J Flooring Group announced that it has established a new partnership with The Center for Health Design, the principal provider of healthcare design research and education.

The partnership includes the creation of a web-based toolbox dedicated specifically to the topic of Senior Living facility design. It will focus on two critical topics: Long Term Care Facilities and Aging in Place (Universal Design).

The Design for Aging Toolbox is free and open to all professionals and non-professionals alike, and is aimed at helping facility designers and medical professionals understand and implement the best possible solutions to support the challenges the increase of the senior population brings to healthcare environments.

Key components for the Design for Aging Toolbox will include: a comprehensive issue brief, an executive summary, design strategies, case studies, expert interviews, lessons learned, an assessment and planning tool and three webinars. A CEU course approved for AIA/EDAC credit will also be available. Similar to existing Center toolboxes, the content will be newly-created and curated by Center staff, all with the goal of connecting the built environment to better health outcomes and reduced cost of care.

The toolbox will be developed and released in phases. The completed product will be released by April 1, 2017 and will remain available to the public through Dec. 31, 2017. The Design for Aging Toolbox and all of its contents will be made available at the Center’s website: www.healthdesign.org

J+J Flooring Group has been a partner with The Center since 2012, sponsoring events, including its annual Research Coalition meeting, and contributing to its mission by providing technical information and research findings.
