Sister Callista Roy’s Adaptation Model describes health as an inevitable dimension of a person’s life, represented by a health-illness continuum. Roy’s premise is that adaptation occurs when people respond positively to environmental changes. According to Roy, the environment can either threaten or promote the person’s unique wholeness.
