Description: Hospitable Design for Healthcare and Senior Communities Albert Bush-Brown, Ph.D., Hon. AIA, President, AB-BA Dianne Davis, Principal, Hospitality Healthcare Designs Hospitable Design for Healthcare and Senior Communities is a pioneering, comprehensive study of interior and architectural design for healthcare and senior communities. Its central thesis is that physical, mental and emotional well-being are improved by hospitable design and services. The book advocates 27 provocative propositions in essays, written by over 60 contributors in diverse professions, which are aimed at achieving both privacy and community within hospitals, ambulatory care centers, senior communities on college campuses, Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), and medhotels. It discusses development, governance, and financing. It urges multi-use urban development incorporating senior residences and social agencies. The following issues are also addressed: What is hospitable design? What are its economic and therapeutic advantages? What is your image of the patient/resident-passive and isolated, or active and creative? What benefits derive from creative engagement-in dance, song and painting? From writing, gardening and a role in governance? Recognizing the therapeutic value of activity and membership, what should their architectural setting be? What public and communal activity spaces are needed, and how shall those communal spaces be shaped, connected and organized? How do you organize space and spatial sequences to achieve privacies and memberships within active healthcare communities? What is the role for horticulture, graphic design, lighting, color and hardware? Can three obstacles to gaining successful healthcare and senior communities be overcome: codes, regulations and finances? What is the future CCRC? Will it be urban and multi-generational in a mixed-use project? Citing national and international examples, Hospitable Design for Healthcare and Senior Communities emphasizes the therapeutic benefits of space, light, landscape, music, art, and poetry. Recent designs are displayed in more than 250 illustrations, 22 in color, which show ways to achieve both privacy and community within settings that stimulate physical, intellectual, aesthetic, and social activity. A singularly philosophical and practical professional reference for designers, architects, developers, investors, administrators, public officials and physicians, Hospitable Design for Healthcare and Senior Communities should be consulted by everyone concerned with health-care and older adults.
