I. Building SmallHome Communities in the City

The aging services sector continues to prove that big is not necessarily better, that private rooms and person-directed care can work in any size setting, and that nursing care can still play a vital role in an organization’s long-term success. This session will tell the story of Poydras Home, a new, purpose-built nursing, assisted living, and memory care community in the heart of New Orleans that offers a smaller-scale alternative to traditional care settings. Presenters will identify strategies for working with investors, regulators, architects, and community stakeholders when developing a small-home infrastructure. You’ll learn how a 200-year-old organization redefined small-home living to serve an urban community and how you can follow its example.
