(July 9, 2020 – Washington, D.C.) — The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is leading the profession in the fight against COVID-19, using the rich experience and knowledge of its membership and other stakeholders to form two new task forces: the ASID Adaptive Living Task Force and the ASID IMPACT Review Task Force.
We didn’t expect to be as busy as ever during this time of isolation but thankfully we are and we are happy to be able to share a bunch of exciting updates with you!
Four of our projects have been entered into award competitions which always gives us a thrill. While our primary goals are always to please our clients and the residents who reside in our communities, we also find input from our peers invaluable. We hope to have exciting award news to share!
In just a matter of weeks, our team successfully created a line of products designed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other viruses. As a result, we have been able to help our clients implement immediate solutions, and plan safer communities after this crisis is behind us.
Our thoughts continue to be with the staff, residents and families in all of our communities, and throughout the senior living industry.
To help our clients weather the effects of the current COVID-19, and to help them be stronger after this crisis is behind us, we wanted to share a few new services specifically designed to support healthy communities.
As we gear up for a couple of upcoming conferences, Keith and I are scheduling 1:1 meetings with operators and investors with new construction, as well as middle market assets and any that would benefit from repositioning. If you will be attending the NIC Spring Conference, be in touch soon so we can set up a time to meet.
I will also be presenting on creating dignity for senior living residents with the environment at The WELL Conference in Scottsdale, AZ at the end of the month. If you will be attending the conference, I hope to see you there!
Keith Stanton, Director of Design Development at Thoma-Holec Design in Mesa, AZ, earned his Healthcare Interior Design Credential. Keith’s achievement makes him the first Certified Health Interior Designer (CHID) in Arizona and one of less than a dozen CHIDs who specialize in senior living/long term care nationwide.
2020 is already off to an exciting start with awards and a couple of new interior design service offerings to be announced soon!
As many of you know, we watch industry trends closely and with the slow down of new construction, we are gearing up to help our clients with remodeling and repositioning plans. Watch for important announcements about this but don’t wait to let us know if you’ve got a community in your portfolio that needs some sprucing up to remain competitive!
