Healing environment

Well-being in care institutions

A healing environment is a friendly, relaxing environment. A place where your patients, clients and visitors feel comfortable and do not experience any unnecessary stress. 

The interior of your care institution affects the well-being and the behaviour of your patients, visitors and employees.

The use of colour, sound, lighting and the arrangement of furniture have a strong influence on well-being. For example, bright and saturated colours have a relaxing influence, plants make places more pleasurable and patients will recover faster after surgery when they are surrounded by nature.

Also, the ability to either socialise or opt for privacy, increases the feeling of well-being within the care institution. Through the use of special furniture in the right way, you can fulfil the needs. The interior architects of Ahrend specialise in furnishing care institutions and creating a healing environment within your institution.
