This article offers a conceptual framework by which different kinds and levels of well-being can be named, and as such,provides a foundation for a resource-oriented approach in situations of illness and vulnerability (rather than a deficit-orientedapproach). Building on a previous paper that articulated the philosophical foundations of an existential theory ofwell-being (‘‘Dwelling-mobility’’), we show here how the theory can be further developed towards practice-relevantconcerns. We introduce 18 kinds of well-being that are intertwined and inter-related, and consider how each emphasis canlead to the formulation of resources that have the potential to give rise to well-being as a felt experience. By focusing on a much wider range of well-being possibilities, practitioners may find new directions for care that are not just literal but also at an existential level.
