There Is No Place Like Home ... But Things Could Be Better

Whitney Berta and Alison Dawson

Abstract

Increasing attention is being placed on the role of the built environment in promoting and sustaining health in long-term care home settings. Work that reconsiders the physical and work designs of the long-term care sector in the future is expected. In light of that, we urge full and reflective consideration of the tensions and complexities that have been brought to light through the pandemic and attending to what is known and knowable about the influences of the built environment on long-term care home residents and staff who provide their care.
