Posted by Karyl Walker on Wed, Nov 10, 2021 @ 09:15 AM

The challenges we have all faced over the past year and a half have awakened us to the importance of maintaining balance in our lives. Everyone can use the occasional reminder that convinces us to reset and to refocus our priorities. For individuals with behavioral health needs, however, the effort to achieve balance never stops. Their recovery always remains a journey, not a destination.

A Comforting Setting Will Help Patients Thrive

Posted by Karyl Walker on Fri, Oct 08, 2021 @ 11:16 AM

A strong clinical program and a highly qualified staff are necessary but not sufficient for an optimal patient experience. Residents/patients will thrive only if the setting of care offers the kind of calming environment that is essential to promoting healing.

Comfortable Meeting Spaces Promote Patient Recovery

Posted by Karyl Walker on Tue, May 25, 2021 @ 01:35 PM

If we ever needed a reminder that we are social beings who thrive on connection, the past year's events gave us unmistakable proof. As staggering as the effect of social isolation has been on all of us, we can't forget the toll it has taken on those who were already facing serious health challenges. Leaders in behavioral health often say recovery is about connection, which is why offering safe and comfortable spaces for patients to interact should be part of any healing environment.

A Shift in Perspective:Seeing Furniture Choices as Investment Decision

Posted by Karyl Walker on Tue, Mar 30, 2021 @ 09:40 AM
With an intimidating number of choices in the marketplace, the people who are tasked with purchasing furniture for healthcare environments can often be left feeling overwhelmed. As with many decisions, one typically chooses the path of least resistance and purchases what is readily available and for the lowest cost. While this strategy may appear to work well in the short-term, it fails to account for whether these choices offer the best long-term investment.

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.
