Listen to The Experts
- Then Create a Plan to Help Others

We web-searched for how a crisis on this scale can reorder society in dramatic ways. In a very positive way, all of these comments focus on the need and opportunities for qualified professionals who are trained to create wellness in every home.
Less Dining Out, More Home Cooking
"For the past few years, Americans have spent more money on food prepared outside the home than on buying and making their meals. But, now, with restaurants mostly closed...many people will learn or relearn how to cook over the next weeks."
Paul Freedman is a history professor at Yale and author, most recently, of American Cuisine: And How It Got This Way.*
"We will see an increase in home socializing with friends and neighbors. Now is the time to learn from other professionals and join the growing movement of providing wellness in every home through design and products ."

A Return to Trust in Educated and Experienced Experts
"First, it has already forced people back to accepting that expertise matters."
Tom Nichols is a professor at the U.S. Naval War College and author of The Death of Expertise.*
"We must use this time to establish ourselves and our businesses as the recognized experts in solutions for home safety, comfort, and accessibility that our clients expect and deserve."

Investing in Our Future
"When this (crisis) ends, we will reorient our politics and make substantial new investments in public goods—for health, especially—and public services."
Eric Klinenberg, professor of sociology and director of the Institute for Public Knowledge at New York University.*
"The opportunity is now to improve all products and services for the good of everyone. We must recognize the individual and combined effect we have on everyone."

Teamwork
"People are finding new ways to connect and support each other in adversity; they are sure to demand major changes in the health-care system and maybe also the government; and they’ll become newly conscious of inter-dependency and community."
Jonathan Rauch, contributing writer at the Atlantic and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.*
"Team work! The more we work together the better our lives become. Housing professionals are now connecting with medical and other experts to learn better ways to build and remodel homes."
The Living In Place Institute
Trends
"Some trends already underway will probably accelerate—for example, using voice technology to control entryways, security and the like...Probably, given past behavior, when this pandemic is over, human beings will respond with the same sense of relief and a search for community, relief from stress, and pleasure."
Mary Frances Berry, professor of American social thought, history & Africana Studies at the University of Pennsylvania.*
"Smart technology is one of the fastest growing tools for improving the built environment. Now our homes can become as smart as our phones, helping us in ways unimaginable a few years ago."

Wellness in EVERY Home
“Your home and work environment are an important influence on your sense of well-being, but they are often overlooked. These are the environments we spend the most time in, so it’s only natural they would have an impact on us.”
Shilagh Mirgain, psychologist, University of Wisconsin Health
"Focus on creating an environment that allows for all occupants and visitors to experience wellness in every home."
