Abstract: In the Philippines, there are an estimated five million Filipinos aged 60 years old and above. Older persons comprise a little over 6% of the total population, but the proportion is expected to be more than 10% by the year 2020 as the number of older people will double by that time (NEDA, 2009). The role of geriatric care is very limited as there are very few homes for the elderly, and geriatric wards are rare in hospitals. According to Charmie Pagulong (2015), Quality of Death study index attributed to a shortage of palliative care, lack of government-led strategy for the development and a limited number of government programs for individuals seeking palliative care services and long-term care for the elderly. Stephen Kellert explored links between people and nature. Also, helped pioneer the concept of Biophilic design, a design philosophy that encourages the use of natural systems in designing of the built environment. It proposes that humans have an innate connection with nature and that the exposure of an individual to the natural world is important for an individual’s well-being. The purpose of the study aims to redefine Biophilic design based on three comparative related literature that will evaluate a range of attributes, applicable to a long-term care facility located in a rural area that offers a multi-sensory attribute in response to design application as a way to effectively enhance health and well-being for individuals. The findings of this study will contribute to building a better society for older people through multi-sensory experience, where individuals live, work, and learn as a way of restorative care.
