Arrangement of Rooms for Residents Health at Senior Homes

Zhe Wang

Focusing on social cohesion in senior homes, a study in China suggested triple-rooms (room shared by three) for assisted-living care and private rooms for nursing care to promote residents’ mental health and wellbeing. The influences of room arrangement on residents’ health in senior homes may be complicated, especially during the difficulty time of pandemic. From the perspective of health, social work, environmental psychology and sociology, more policing, research and practical projects should be launched in the context of both Western and Eastern cultures, during and after a pandemic.
