Making a Difference in the Lives of the Underserved
There is nothing more rewarding for a helping professional than having a positive impact on the lives of the underserved. The twin pandemics of COVID-19 and social injustice continue to shine a light on the needs of the historically marginalized. We at Furniture Concepts are honored to play a part in helping those who work every day to touch the lives of the too-often forgotten.
Back in the 1990s, the Archives of Family Medicine published a study based on surveys of physicians and other medical professionals who were committed to working with low-income patients. The researchers found that these professionals shared a strong sense of serving humanity. They also thrived on being able to translate limited resources into creative ways to meet their patients’ human needs. That concept dictates what we offer our partners: affordable, effective options that help them maximize the therapeutic impact of their care settings.
Much attention lately has focused on assisting hard-to-reach populations through telehealth. But even those who are most bullish on advanced technology for health care admit there’s no substitute for face-to-face contact in building a therapeutic relationship. This is where our expertise comes in, as we use careful design and high-quality materials to help you create environments of care that maximize patient interaction and wellness.
Our lines have been compassionately designed with patients’ needs in mind, never cutting corners on safety. We feel privileged to help you create the healing spaces that will improve your patients’ outcomes.
We know that serving the disadvantaged can be trying. Progress is often incremental, and setbacks can be expected. But the most effective helping professionals persevere, just as their patients must. Let us partner with you to enhance your success in working with the underserved.
