How to design the healthcare space for kids

Episode Notes

When your patients are kids, how do you make them feel safe, happy and comfortable in your wellness space apart from throwing them some toys and calling it a day? What about special needs kids and their stressed out parents who are also your clients? Tune in today for a special episode with me, your hostess, Cheryl Janis, and J. Davis Harte—a big hearted wellness interior designer and educator who specializes in children’s places, trauma-informed spaces and birth environments.

Here are some highlights:

👉 Hear about the dentist who created a kid-scale front door to help his pediatric patients feel safe and welcomed in his office.
👉 Learn how a fish tank set inside a wall serves as a positive distraction for special needs kids in the waiting room and allows the staff on the other side of the wall to keep an eye on their clients.
👉 Gain insight into cultural messages about color that play a role in the design of your healthcare space.
👉 Learn what types of furniture are best for the waiting room and how to create a perceived sense of privacy for families.
