The Heights at Mt. View Research Project Update
Since early 2014, Baptist Housing has been partnering with researchers at the SFU Gerontology Research Centre. This research concerns the transition of Residents from two outdated residences to our new Heights at Mt. View residential care residence, which opened last fall.
Research findings featuring The Heights at Mt. View were recently presented at the International Medical Geography Symposium (IMGS) and summarized the neighbourhood factors of care residences necessary for supported wellbeing. Take a look at the research findings here: Long-term Care Inside and Out.
Baptist Housing's long-time partner, Lark Group, has given $15,000 in support of this project.
When the evaluation is complete in Spring 2016, there will be an evaluation report, a lay summary, and design guidelines to share at a local level. Baptist Housing is thrilled to be contributing to a future where seniors can age well thanks to leading edge building and care strategies.
