Susan King FAIA on 9 Ways the Dimensions of Wellness Improve Assisted Living Facility Design
Susan King, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C’s article “Nine ways the dimensions of wellness should be incorporated into assisted living facility design” has recently been published in Healthcare Facilities Today.
The 'Dimensions of Wellness' can range anywhere from 4 to 12 dimensions based on who you ask and have been defined by organizations such as the National Wellness Institute, The Institute for Wellness Education, and Universities all around the country. One thing that all agree on, though, is that wellness is more than just the absence of disease.
Can the built environment play a part in this effort? Absolutely.
