Greenery view for aged well-being

Post by Dreamweaver »

A distant view of greenery from common areas of aged care homes is associated with lower stress and higher quality of life among residents, a Swinburne University of Technology study has found.
The study published in the Health Environments Research & Design Journal examined how views of greenery from different areas in an aged care home impacted and changed the psychological wellbeing of new aged care residents.
Not just having their own small gardening project, but a wide view. A bedroom window view is not enough, the resident has to see an expanse.

I suspect water views would have the same effect.
