RoomsRooms have been designed with a strong focus on maintaining individuality, independence, privacy and security in a home environment. The rooms are finished in warm colours and include a comfortable chair, bedside table, bed, and wardrobe.
Coloured bedspreads and curtains are chosen to contrast the walls, however use of familiar bedspreads from home are encouraged. There is ample room to add to these furnishings with pieces from home, or they may be replaced with pieces from home.
Windows provide views of the area, while providing natural lighting. Privacy and security are maintained through the implementation of a call system, privacy curtains and placement of furniture.
The rooms have been designed with a strong focus on maintaining individuality, independence, privacy and security in a home environment. Identification of resident's rooms can be determined by a number of way-finding
elements that may include:
- Contrasting room numbers outside room door
- Name plates outside room door
- Placement of familiar objects from home within the room, i.e. bedspread, chair, dresser
Televisions:We have provided televisions in lounge areas for residents use. Should a resident prefer to have their own television in their room the resident or family member assumes the installation and financial responsibilities. Residents making use of radios and televisions will be expected to respect the rights of the other residents. Earphones may be requested.
Telephones: Should daily telephone calls be part
of the resident's routine, we suggest the installation
of a private line. You may contact Bell Canada
directly to arrange for installation.
