Posted by Ashley Martin on Fri, Jan 07, 2022 @ 09:15 AM

Making predictions for the new year always proves dicey, and forecasting how 2022 will unfold is no exception. Just as we began to think we'd be moving out of COVID's pandemic stage by early next year, Omicron threw in new uncertainty. This comes at a time when managers in group-living environments already face growing expectations from patients and their families.

Offer an Extra Helping of Support During the Holidays

Posted by Tiffany Fenner on Fri, Dec 10, 2021 @ 09:53 AM

Media messages try to envelop all of the holiday season into one loving Hallmark moment, but this doesn't match the reality many of your clients' experience. The holidays can be a trying time for those struggling with illness and recovery, with a swirl of emotions creating something of a “Bermuda Triangle” around Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the New Year. Add to the mix the lingering anxiety around COVID-19, and this could prove to be an extremely stressful period for patients and staff alike.

Create Comforting Spaces That Maintain Durability

Posted by Karyl Walker on Tue, Aug 31, 2021 @ 11:48 AM

Experts in health care services constantly talk about the importance of offering care in the “least-restrictive setting,” because we know most patients will do better in environments that are less institutional and more like home. This is the idea behind our expanded Safe Harbor collection. These products help to create a group living environment that is soothing to patients/residents, reducing stress and enhancing their well-being.

Use Design to Create a Healing Environment

Posted by Karyl Walker on Mon, Oct 26, 2020 @ 04:22 PM

High quality, evidence-based clinical care proves to be the most essential element for good patient/resident outcomes. Yet no facility should ignore the importance of the physical environment in promoting healing. A growing body of research demonstrates that the design features you select will make a major difference in either facilitating or impeding your clients' progress.

The use of evidence-based design in healing environments originated from 1980s research that found post-surgery patients who had a view of natural scenery recovered better than patients who faced a brick wall. Since then, other studies have shown that features such as peaceful artwork, access to natural light and limited background noise all play an important role in patient well-being.

Consistency in design also can improve your staff's productivity. Limiting the use of surfaces that are subject to frequent contamination reduces the threat of infection, no small consideration today. Improved lighting and acoustics have a calming effect on staff and can reduce the potential for costly errors.

The good news is improvements that make a difference do not have to carry a hefty price tag. Simple color choices, for example, can do wonders to promote healing. Blues, greens and neutral tones are known to create a calming effect. Any serene natural settings around your facility also should be incorporated into your design.

Here at Furniture Concepts we offer space planning and design expertise that can maximize your facility's capacity for promoting healing. Our furniture lines offer an ideal combination of form and function, with durable solid construction that conveys a home-like feel for patient rooms and group areas.

Aesthetically pleasing spaces that feature comfortable furnishings, soothing colors and natural light will enhance patient well-being and improve outcomes. We can assist you in humanizing your clinical environment, for the benefit of your patients, their families, and your workforce.
