KEYNOTE
MONDAY, JUNE 1, NOON-1 P.M. EDT
Aftermath of COVID-19: New
Approaches to Senior Living Design
The world of senior living has been deeply affected by the
COVID-19 crisis, as communities across the country respond
to the spread by enforcing numerous requirements to support
social distancing and keep residents safe. In this keynote
panel, four senior living owners and designers will discuss how
this new reality will shape the future of design going forward.
They'll share how their organizations have responded to the
pandemic, as well as best practices to consider as the industry
begins to ease its restrictions and reopen. Looking forward, the
group will discuss the new realities tied to space planning, care
models, and product and technology specification in a postpandemic world.
Moderator:
Jennifer Kovacs Silvis, editor-in-chief,
Environments for Aging

Speakers:
Vassar Byrd, CEO, Rose Villa Senior Living
Vassar Byrd has been creating unique
partnerships in the senior living landscape
for over 15 years. With the financial rigor of
a master's in Economics from the London
School of Economics (and a first career as
an economist and business consultant) as a foundation, she
has reinterpreted and redefined what living in community
can mean as we age. Building on the work she began with
a master's in Gerontology from Naropa University (Boulder,
Colo.), her focus has been on providing powerful environments
fostering personal autonomy, creativity, and profound respect.
Her broad base of experience helped her to finance and build
a 2014 $60 million redevelopment of Rose Villa, with a $27
million second phase completed in 2019 (a $70 million third
phase is on the way!). Rose Villa first won national recognition
for its dramatic turnaround and rebranding, as well as its vision
of pocket neighborhoods. More recently, Rose Villa has been
the first senior living community on the west coast to build net
zero energy homes, in its Oaks neighborhood.
