What Do We Know About Life Skill Stations?
Hi! My name is Amanda Nowak and I have worked as an interior designer in the senior living field since 2007. More specifically, most of my career was spent doing design and sourcing for dementia communities.
I've worked hand-in-hand with dementia specialists to source life skill station packages for some of the largest senior living companies in the country. Because of this, I often get communities asking how to create life skill stations like the 'big guys,' but it's often cost-prohibitive. This course will provide you with the know-how and resources to not only make your own, but also maintain them. Let's just say this is the course I wish existed 20 years ago!
From our kind colleague:
"When you’re designing for senior living, you’re inevitably designing for dementia care, but I think 99.9% of designers ignore that fact! There is barely any research into design and certainly barely any courses teaching providers what to do. Amanda will show you how to make life stations attractive, affordable and PRACTICAL. Your residents need to want to utilize your stations, and setup and maintenance of these stations are key. Amanda understands the ins and outs of dementia care design. She knows her stuff and can take your life station woes and turn them into wows!"
