Environments for Aging - Fall 2016 - 6

EDITORIAL Win-win The road to happy residents is lined with happy workers At a recent event put on by our sister publication Healthcare Design (which is also staffed by the editors of EFA), small-group discussions focused on a few different industry topics, one of which was patient satisfaction and how design could play a role in improving it. Christie Jones, a color consultant who runs Color 43 in Sebastopol, Calif., shared a perspective from her work that struck a chord for both healthcare and senior living environments. Jones spends much of her time consulting on little design changes that can make a big difference within skilled nursing facilities (SNF) and rehab units. At one point, she went into a SNF prior to a scheduled renovation and, immediately, the staff were on their guard. They didn't want change, she explained. They didn't want anyone messing with their environment and, in turn, with their processes. So she told them: "We're going to start by redoing the staff lounge. Tell me what you want it to be." It was a pretty simple way to ease the staff into a change frame of mind and make them feel heard. Jones, like many others, also spends a lot of time on lighting that better supports staff, especially late-shift workers. At one community, she said, all amber lights were installed in a small room where night nurses could sit for a while after their shifts ended and calm their bodies before driving home and going to bed. Starting with staff needs is a sneaky-smart way to make everyone's lives better. The approach may sound like you're putting resident needs second (by default), but that doesn't have to be the case. Happier, better-rested caregivers, especially in a SNF, will be more present and alert with the residents they tend to. Better caregivers, better care, happier/healthier residents.

(For more on skilled nursing design, see page 36.) The people who support the residents-not just the staff, but visitors and the neighborhood at large-are all worthy of attention in any senior living community's design. In this issue, Jami Mohlenkamp of OZ Architecture (Denver) offers some good tips about designing for each of these types of building users ("Making Everyone Feel at Home," page 16). Do you have other ideas for serving those who serve residents? We'd love to hear them.
