Deteriorating health can leave people feeling a loss of control, however, a well-designed environment can offer independence, dignity, access to nature and a sense of purpose and belonging. Working with the Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice – which establishes a strong connection with nature through its building (pictured) and wider grounds – our research aims to establish the impact of environment on wellbeing to inform guidelines for future facilities.
