Deliver the Right Message to Your Visitors
Over the past two years, many patient care sites strengthened their visitation policies out of necessity, taking care to protect residents from virus exposure. Most of these policies remain in place, making it easier to check in visitors and to monitor their whereabouts. But are facilities also paying attention to the other signals they might be sending visitors about the quality of their operations?
Having a standardized screening procedure at the front door, with the technology to support it, will send the message that a facility’s owners care about resident and visitor safety. But won’t all that goodwill go for naught if the environment of care isn’t as carefully planned?
It takes no more than a few moments for someone new to your facility to judge whether the setting appears warm and home-like or cold and institutional. We at Furniture Concepts can help you design spaces that convey a sense of comfort, security, and attention to detail.
Our diverse collections feature time-tested, low-maintenance designs that allow you to tailor your space to the needs of the population you serve. Our product lines also help to create a welcoming environment, an impression that won’t be lost on those visiting for the first time. They’ll be left with the clear sense that this is a care setting where the person they care about can make progress.
In response to COVID-19, facility directors invested in everything from temperature scanning to facial recognition technology to allow them to reopen to the community, bringing back visitors safely. But always keep in mind that it’s the home-like features of your environment of care that will leave the strongest and most lasting impression. Let us work with you to create spaces that are most welcoming to residents, staff, and visitors alike.
