A general recreation room in the adult acute care ward

Aims and outcomes

The aims of the project were to transform the recreation room into a family visiting and parenting room that would provide a safe therapeutic space for patients, their children and members of their family to interact and spend quality time maintaining family relationships.

The redesigned room provides an opportunity for families to have privacy, with nursing staff on hand to help if needed.
