With much of the population living longer, there is even more of a need for nursing homes, hospices and palliative care facilities, and crucially for them to be designed correctly and with the patients needs in mind.
We treat these environments with sensitivity and where appropriate will consult with patients and staff as well as management teams, to ensure that schemes are a true reflection of everyone’s needs.
We commissioned Homesmiths to transform our dated day hospice into a Wellbeing Centre that could meet the needs of both our existing patients and those who might use the Centre in the future. We knew it would be a challenge to find a scheme that everybody identified with and Homesmiths helped us to translate patients’ needs and priorities into reality. They were involved from the outset – holding focus groups with our patients and creating attractive proposals, illustrated through mood boards. They led the entire design process – from liaising with contractors to making last minute additions to accommodate our needs – I would thoroughly recommend to any organisation with a project of this type.
