Knowledge for Providers of Care Environments

Within the context of older people’s care homes, our goal is to provide information to the industry and its professionals on the better design of the built environment for ageing.  Findings from our research could have a societal benefit by having direct impact on the specification of buildings, furnishings and fittings for care homes enabling older people in the future to remain active and involved.

Care home, providers, managers and staff play a vital role in procuring, managing, operating and maintaining these environments.  We hope to help their understandings of the contribution these environments make to their service users and how to enhance them.
