Victor Regnier has produced another excellent and useful book which chronicles the last ten years of progress in assisted living design. From design considerations to case studies using hundreds of photographs and illustrations, the book communicates dozens of cutting edge concepts. —David J. Hoglund FAIA Partner, Perkins-Eastman Architects
The next twenty years will see a major growth in non-institutional alternatives to traditional nursing homes. Armed with insights he gathered from northern Europe and best practices from the United States, Victor Regnier has produced an inspiring look at choices we can make in designing the next generation of housing for the frail. —James E. Birren Ph.D., Associate Director, UCLA Center on Aging
