Independent living, assisted living and nursing care facilities face several challenges in providing exceptional care for our family members in an environment that is as warm and inviting as a home. Lighting is a key aspect of any facility. However, when the requirement is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere while also meeting stringent energy codes, the task can become more difficult.
Fortunately, commercially available energy-efficient lighting products have recently turned the corner and are now fully capable of providing a high quality of light, as well as the long performance life and energy efficiency necessary to provide real return on investment in a short period of time.
