Thanks to donations received, a room with no windows used by the Medecine Unit was remodeled to provide patients a calm and soothing environment.
« Our patients truly appreciate this room because it is welcoming and comforting: the lighting is soft and relaxing, and pictures embellish the room. Furthermore, since the intensity of the light can be changed, we can simulate natural daylight, thus creating a sense of time for the patient. This has a soothing effect for patients feeling anxious, confused or isolated. »
