Your first impression of a care environment comes from the entrance. Here, the interior design makes everyone feel welcome and included and portrays the vision of the organisation. Soft music and the fragrance of fresh flowers or herbs can heighten the experience. The entrance is so much more than just a passageway; it is a waiting area, a place to meet, a place to work or a place to have a cup of coffee. It is a free-zone close to the flats. The environment has a warm colour palette, is easily comprehended and clearly shows how to get where you want to go. The furnishings are soft and welcoming, with space for privacy or for socialising.
