For directors and regional or executive directors in charge of maintaining healthcare facilities and assisted living environments, the health and well-being of patients and residents is the number one priority. Proper treatment and diagnosis is always top of mind when it comes to healing people, and preventative care is important to prevent illness from the start. But it’s vital to surround them with an environment that promotes good health too. This is especially true when they’re full-time residents, living at a long-term care facility or convalescent home.
From a physiological perspective, a clean, germ-free place where they can be treated and cared for without risk of infection is crucial. If you can support their medical regimen by giving them a natural escape, like a rose garden or outdoor courtyard lined with shade trees with a relaxing water feature as the focal point, the effect has proven to be incredibly therapeutic for physical health, as well as for mental and emotional health. But when it comes to maintaining a high occupancy rate, quality resident and patient care is only part of the equation. You’ve got to make sure you’re providing a comfortable, aesthetically pleasing environment for long-term and short-term residents, visiting friends and family members, prospective residents, and your staff as well. And safety is a must.
ProGreen understands how critical it is for hospitals, medical facilities, assisted living environments and even retirement communities to keep walkways and recreational areas safe and free of fall hazards, especially when they’re most often being used by residents who may be restricted to wheelchairs or other mobility aids. We also know that meeting budgeted operating expenses and managing the landscape on top of being responsible for the well-being of many can be an overwhelming job. That’s why our healthcare customers depend on us to manage their landscapes.
