MARGOT SCHULMAN
B.A., D.I.D., B.I.D.

OWNER, PRINCIPAL

INTERIOR DESIGNER & SOCIOLOGIST (GERONTOLOGY)

 

Margot Schulman has been an entrepreneur, interior designer, and sociologist (Gerontology) for more than 20 years. Through her full-service interior design firm, she transforms commercial and residential spaces and spearheads change for those with mobility or cognitive challenges. She offers innovative design solutions that celebrate aging and independence. Margot is passionate about caring for people and is committed to shifting cultural paradigms through advocacy, accessibility design, education, and strategic partnerships. She regularly presents at international conferences and workshops, such as Environments for Aging and is currently an Advisory Board Member for Aging in Place. Schulman Design is co-leading Calgary’s first Aging in Place | Home Modification Caregiver Omnimedia Conference in April 2019.

Margot draws from her experience with her brother, David, whose life was catastrophically altered at age 13 when he was in a cycling accident that resulted in a severe closed head injury and diagnosed as a spastic quadriplegic. To gain a deeper understanding of what aging well looks like and to encourage intergenerational relationships, she lives in a seniors’ community with her children. She and her team members are trained facilitators of Virtual Dementia Tour® (VDT®), an evidence-based dementia simulation training.

 

Margot believes that we all have an impact on society and how we choose to fuel positive change within a global ecosystem is firmly within our grasp. She is committed to shifting cultural paradigms by curating the aging spirit.
