The 2009 AAHSA Annual Meeting in Expo this is year is in Chicago at the McCormick Place. This year they are featuring a full scale, 2600 SQFT home which includes and demonstrates cutting edge design and technology from more than 25 companies!
The Expo is not open to the public but the home is and I plan on stopping by to check it out, take some pictures and blog about the technology and design. As a professional who works in the industry and as a student of interior design, I can’t wait to see what they have in store as the future is now. And many of these technologies can be used in your home today, no matter if you live in a traditional home or a retirement or assisted living community is where you call home.
The technology will showcase safety, health and wellness, social connectedness and entertainment. There will also be therapy-based entertainment to improve cognitive development for seniors!
