E26 - Tool for Evaluating the Design of the Household Model

The household model of design seeks to recreate the core elements of a home environment for residents. While research generally suggests that household models are associated with more positive outcomes, a major limitation of the research is the lack of a standardized definition of, or tool to measure, the homelike character of a long-term care setting. The Environmental Audit Screening Evaluation (EASE) is an evidence-based tool designed to evaluate the discrete elements of household design in long-term care settings in a manner no other assessment tool offers. Learn how the instrument is used and see examples of environmental elements that may typically otherwise go unnoticed.
