Date:11/18/2009

nvironments for an Aging Society provides an insightful review of the evidence-based literature on long-term care design. Dr. Sharon Joines from the North Carolina State University, College of Design, has written an overview dealing with the concept of universal design and its application to residential design for persons with neurological disability. Professors Victor Regneir and Alexis Denton from the Architectural and Gerontology Department of the University of Southern California contribute an article on new and emerging building trends that focuses on European models of design. The topic of lighting design is explored by Elizabeth Brawley of Design Concepts Unlimited, Sausalito, CA.

Dr. Sherril York from the National Center on Accessibility at Indiana University shares her architectural views on outdoor design relative to accessibility related issues. Dr. Tony Gentry, OTR/L has contributed an article dealing with "smart homes" which provides a state-of-the-art look at some of the technology currently available to facilitate independence in community based residential settings. Lastly, Laura Kiser, OTR/L and Dr. Zasler provide an overview of practical residential design recommendations for persons with acquired brain injury (ABI). The issue also includes a listing of extensive web-based resources that provide further information to facilitate design decisions and their implementation.

"This special thematic issue of NeuroRehabilitation on residential design serves as a 'one-stop' resource for individuals interested in serving the housing needs of persons with neurodisability and/or for those making modifications to their own home" stated Dr. Zasler.
