ASID: Taking the turn
“A bend in the road is not the end of the road, unless you refuse to take the turn.”
Learning to accept challenges is a part of life, but how easily you accept them and integrate them into your life makes all the difference. This is especially true with healthcare decisions. Throughout my life as an interior designer I’ve met a lot of different people that are dealing with a wide range of healthcare issues. Unfortunately many people have health issues that caught them by surprise, and suddenly they find themselves learning about new treatments while having to spend a lot of time in healthcare facilities.
While patients are focused on the new treatments doctors are providing, most of them won’t give a second thought to the design of the facility. That’s because designer and doctors are not all that different; we both want to know all your history, what things make you comfortable and what things cause you pain. When we do our job best, we listen. We learn from each other and we form a trust that you can count on us to be there to do what is best for you. I know that in my career there have been times that I have been approached with decisions that require that I look around that turn to see what is in sight.
I would encourage each of my readers to “Take the turn!”; you may actually like what is around the bend.
Have you called your doctor today? Or better yet, have you called your designer?
