The architects and facility managers strove to create a space that felt "more home-like instead of institutional," according to Executive Assistant, Robin Stevenson. Administrators at Futurecare sought products that were not only durable, but also had a ‘hotel-type, high-end feel for our residents,” said Stevenson.
Acrovyn® handrails and crash rails were utilized in the Cherrywood facility’s main lobby, dining room and first floor unit corridors to serve residents and visitors who pass through these areas. Our Saratoga® wall protection system was used as an eye-catching, durable facade on a custom-built nurses’ station and the receptionist’s desk in the main lobby.
Lochearn’s third floor hallways were modernized with our Saratoga wall protection, and resident rooms received flat panel Acrovyn Doors. Acrovyn by Design® was used behind beds to create a space of comfort and relaxation with a design from the new pattern collection.
Stevenson was impressed with the “performance, design and versatility” demonstrated by our Acrovyn wall and door protection products during and after the renovation at the Cherrywood and Lochearn centers.
“Acrovyn by Design has really changed the way we’ve been doing our resident rooms throughout the facility—instead of placing a bumper guard behind the bed, we’ve done a full-height piece of Acrovyn by Design,” said Stevenson.
Acrovyn by Design was utilized to make alluring interiors for residents, while also providing protection within their rooms. The CS products chosen for these renovations provided the durable, polished design they needed to update these two FutureCare facilities.
