The lounge

There are great opportunities for making the living room feel like home. This is a place for collaboration, social interaction and a good quality of life. The interior design solution is flexible and can be changed during the day or over time. Here, there is a TV corner and a table at dining height with easy chairs for games and conversations. The wheelchair-bound are also easily included. Naturally, there is an opportunity to participate passively on one's own terms in individual zones that have embracing easy chairs and airy shelves to partition parts off. Variety is of the essence in order for everyone to feel included and to bring out the feeling of belonging. Nonetheless, there is a uniformity in the furnishings and colours to prevent the room from feeling cluttered and muddled. Large windows let in daylight and offer lovely views. All the senses are stimulated.

“The best quality care environment cannot be created by a single person or occupational group but instead requires collaboration supported by conscious leadership on all levels to lay the foundation for development.”

Helle Wijk, professor of nursing in care environments and geriatrics
