If you manage a community-based group home you know the challenges of converting a residential home into a functional group home. Choppy room layouts, narrow hallways, single person bathrooms, and other space issues make converting a residential home into a functioning group living facility tricky. Furniture is an important part of outfitting a group living environment. Furniture can aid in enhancing consumer mobility & independence, managing fluid issues, and ensuring safetyand cleanliness. While using a local, residential furniture store seems like a quick and easy way to outfit group living facilities the truth is that residential furniture is not designed for heavy use, does not comply with many licensing requirements, often does not meet compliance codes for health care facilities and is, in general, not well suited to the needs of consumers and staff.
