Healthier, Safer Floorcoverings for Senior Living
Flooring in senior living care can have a direct impact on residents and staff. At J+J we understand the importance of non-slip flooring and its effect on safety, comfort, acoustics and creating a warm and inviting environment. That is why we give you access to a complete portfolio of high-performance soft surface and advanced textile composite flooring products engineered to stand up to the multipurpose demands of senior living spaces.
+ Safety: Textured surfaces increase traction and underfoot stability, providing an ergonomically supportive environment that facilitates mobility and ease of movement. Increased underfoot stability also significantly decreases the overall risk of slips and falls – reducing impact and injury when falls do occur.
+ Comfort: Underfoot cushioning reduces leg fatigue for staff and residents, while soft surfaces reduce visual glare and absorb light.
+ Acoustics: Sound absorption & noise dampening help create peaceful, inviting environments, and promote personal interaction and engagement.
+ Indoor Air Quality: Soft surface fibers trap allergens and airborne particles until they can be removed during cleaning.
Combined with the practiced approach of evidence-based design, our products provide a solid foundation for enhanced living and healing environments ranging from independent and assisted living to skilled nursing, Alzheimer’s, and memory care facilities.
The Clean Slate Project
J+J Flooring is a co-sponsor with architectural firm Perkins Eastman of the Clean Slate Project to explore senior living through fresh eyes. Clean Slate focuses on the trends, industry disruptors and opportunities to innovate that are poised to transform senior lifestyles.
Perkins Eastman looked ahead to understand the expectations of future seniors, with the goal of sharing and applying what they learn to drive innovation in senior living. The Clean Slate team identified four macro-shocks likely to influence senior living lifestyles. See the Clean Slate video to learn more.
The published report also offers six different scenarios for new senior living models in the near future. Download the 60-page Clean Slate report from the Perkins Eastman website . Scroll down until you find it.

SAGE Post-Occupancy Evaluation Program
J+J is privileged to support the Society for the Advancement of Gerontological Environments (SAGE)’s post-occupancy evaluation (POE) program for senior living environments.
The 2019 SAGE POE was conducted at LivGenerations Ahwatukee, an aging in place senior living community in Phoenix, AZ. Check out the findings. We hope it provides helpful ideas for future design.

The 2018 SAGE POE was conducted at the memory care and dementia households at the Cottage at Cypress Cove in Fort Meyers, Fla. What we found might not surprise you, but it will certainly make you think.
