Evidence based design in senior living facility
In healthcare, evidence-based design is a field of study that deals with how the environment can influence a person’s wellbeing. It is believed that this kind of design can make a real difference for people as they age, removing some of the stress, frustration and confusion from everyday living.

Designers are taking the results of these studies and applying them into their designs in order to achieve similar outcomes. Design choices, such as flooring color or location of a sink, can lead to achieving a measurable goal of reducing disorientation, loss of balance and the risk of falling.
