The entrance

The entrance is often the most overlooked space in a care environment – with lots of potential for development. The first impression must be welcoming, homely and inspiring. It presents an opportunity to announce the facility's vision, brand and identity, creating pride and wellbeing among residents, relatives and personnel, as well as a positive image for the recruitment of new tenants and employees. Inclusive design and furnishing with section seating, everything from easy chairs to sofas and task chairs, provide a safe and calm waiting area for transport services and visitors, creating space for informal meetings at the same time. The room should be designed and signposted so it is easy to navigate.
