The focus of this study is to identify planning, programming and design factors in residential settings that encourage people over 50 to remain active, such as site selection, connection to the surrounding community, site design and walking paths, interior layout and circulation and provision of activity spaces, as well as more subtle factors such as overall wayfinding and ambience.

    6. What are the post-grant plans for the project if it does not conclude with the grant? We seek to continue to disseminate the results through publication and presentation as well as continuing to translate the results for use by CCRCs. We also have several research plans if we can find support: { TC "Chapter 6: Discussion" \f C \l "1" }  Focus Groups with Residents: conduct focus groups with residents to understand their view of physical activity and how design and programming can support it.  Case Studies: conduct on-site observation, environmental analysis and interviews of selected CCRCs  Checklist: based on the synthesis paper, survey, focus groups, and case studies, develop a comprehensive checklist for providers of physical design features and programming that might encourage physical activity among residents.
