In this secured unit of a Long Term Care Facility, residents have a colourful wrap-around vista to enhance their walks.
Mural invites walkers from all sides
Approximately 20 feet of landscape.
Problem solving in awkward spaces
This end of the hallway was a place for residents and their families to sit. We were asked to make it more inviting. Now with a little backdrop and a scene out the "window", this spot is a cozy nook (and that side door is less conspicuous).
Solution: Making a sitting area more of an attraction
This basement Adult Day Centre lacked a view and this sitting area was rather bland. Now it is the main attraction and serves to keep attention away from the (disguised) exit door.
Greeting sign for resident and visitors
Long Term Care Homes give a lot of thought to making the environment home-like and welcoming. Here is a good way to start. Have this sign greet residents and family members upon entering their living space!
Concealing Problematic Windows
Windows in Memory Care. The activity seen through this window, located in an Adult Day Centre caused the attendees to become anxious to leave. This fish tank treatment allows visibility into the unit from the other side while calming those inside.
Entranceway to an Adult Day Centre
A fresh and relaxing scene greets visitors to this Adult Day Centre and sets the mood for activities to come.
Extended Porch Mural
Scene can contain the Woods as shown or other relaxing scene.

Karen and Brian Romeril have been free-lancing their artwork for more than 20 years on such projects as the Avon Theatre's renovation, the Discovery Centre and The Bruce Hotel in Stratford. By contrast, they have enjoyed "Marking Art Work" improving environments for residents in Long Term Care communities. They specialize in exit diversion - proven to alleviate anxiety - and in creating the "look and feel" of home, while adding an extra layer of safety for residents in care.
