Senior Behavioral Health Treatment Room
A calming space that can be used to soothe and still patients.
Within the Senior Behavioral Health Center on the fourth floor at CHSNorthEast, RdM Architecture is reimagining this old patient room into a ‘spa-like’ bathing and salon space for the dementia patients housed in this center. The staff asked that we work toward providing a calming space that can be used to soothe and still patients while going through what can be a traumatic experience. Functionally challenged, this small space is being designed to maximize storage and workspace while providing circulation for non-ambulatory patients. Upgrades to casework, ceilings, and finishes are synthesized to meet these complex combinations of functions and aesthetics improvements.
