HomeSmiths are acutely aware of how important it is for those living in residential care to feel like it is their home. For many residents moving out of their family home and into a care home for the first time, the change can be huge so how the home looks and feels when they first come in will make an enormous difference to how they settle. With clever use of colour, well thought through lighting, consideration of acoustics, furniture and furnishings with a domestic feel and art and imagery from the local area to spark happy memories and talking points, we can turn a place of care into a home for the people living there. More and more of our clients are looking at ways to connect with the local community. Creating spaces that promote this and support intergenerational activities is growing ever more important. Our schemes are designed with residents, carers and visitors in mind. Inclusive design benefits everyone.
