Eight Dimensions of Wellness Model
Carole's House of Hope utilizes the Eight Dimensions of Wellness Model, that focusses on eight categories or dimensions; Social, Occupational, Spiritual, Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Environmental and Financial. By applying the model, each participant becomes more aware of the connection between each dimension and how they contribute to healthy living. This holistic model explains: How a person contributes to their environment and community, and how to build better living spaces and social networks.
