Clear, well-documented information for each facility includes: Building descriptions and project data, and how the overall design fits within a geographical location; The type of community, including number of residents, ethnicity, and specific conditions such as dementia; How to apply universal design principles in different political, social, and regulatory contexts; How to create a sense of belonging and well-being for residents while building strong connections with the community at large; What makes a facility able to attract and retain high-quality caregivers; Environmental sustainability issues, plus indoor and outdoor spaces"--Publisher description.
