Look after your staff with breakout rooms to improve care

Create break-out spaces to give your carers a place to rest, says leading architect

During these difficult times and with care home staff under pressure, the importance of breakout spaces and quiet rooms are as important to the wellbeing of staff as they are to residents and patients.

DWA Architects says that ‘Breakout Spaces’ can have huge benefits for healthcare professionals.

“They can be created on a relatively small budget within a relatively small area,” says architect Lauren Di Pietro. “It’s possible to design innovative spaces as a makeover to the typical staff rest room by potentially using redundant space at the end of a corridor or creating a small private garden room.”

DWA works with care homes to design breakout spaces.

“We have the ability to create spaces which people want to work in as well as live in,” says Di Pietro. “There are benefits for staff, residents and the operator. By caring for the carers and staff, it inevitably means better care.”
