About The Episode
When it comes to creating change, it can start from the ground up. Our Mavericks, Francis & Taylor, learn the ins and outs of designing senior living for better infection control from William Brummett, an architect specializing in senior and special care settings for 28 years. Mr. Brummett was the recipient of 3 national fellowships to study senior living, a past fellow at Institute on Aging and Environment, focusing on memory care, and the author of two published books on senior care.
