With people in mind
We have a long history of collaborating closely with architects, nursing home executives, safe patient handling experts, residents and relatives. Our experience has taught us that to create efficient care facilities and to obtain a good working environment, the right combination of environment, equipment and care skills are needed. Therefore it is key to design for sufficient space early in the planning of a new facility.
Optimising care facilities
Planning a care facility is about planning for the future, and will impact both the efficiency and quality of care and the work environment for the caregivers.
We base our work on our Positive Eight™ philosophy and starts with the combination of environment, equipment and care skills.
We have also developed The Mobility Gallery™, a validated risk assessment tool based on five personas and their levels of functional mobility
