Transitioning to a nursing home can be a challenging time for residents and their families. Remodeling your facility to make it more welcoming and home-like can make the transition much easier for everyone involved.

What to Discuss in Your Remodel Meeting with Benchmark

How to Make a Favorable First Impression

The entryway to your nursing home facility is a reflection of what's inside and is critical to your mission. Your front door, lobby, and reception desk should be well lit, inviting, and include comfortable seating and up-to-date decor. This is something we'll want to discuss.

Living Areas

Residents and their guests spend considerable amounts of time in their bedrooms and living areas. Each room should feel home-like without overlooking the help necessary to nursing home life. Handrails, power-assisted doors, and bathrooms with the required aids and amenities should be included without making the room look like it's part of a medical facility. Portable nurses stations can allow residents to receive care in the familiar comfort of their room.

As an experienced construction services company, we can help you select the latest features to help make your nursing home the best in your area.

Dining Areas

Cafeteria-style dining is rarely a favorite. Think out-of-the-box when choosing the style of your nursing home's dining area. Natural lighting, round dining tables, comfortable seating, and beautiful floors and wall coverings can all work together to create a pleasant, restaurant-style dining experience your residents and their guests will enjoy.

Ask Your Residents

Your nursing home residents call your facility their home. Ask for their input when it's time for a renovation. Their families will likely have suggestions, and your nursing staff is also a valuable resource.
