Senior care facilities strive to present a high-quality environment for their residents, balanced with maintaining low operating costs. It’s a difficult challenge, but one piece of the puzzle that can achieve both results is a switch to LED lighting. LED lighting is known to be energy efficient and offer a high quality of light that can improve visual performance and comfort. Lighting Science’s LED solutions, however, don’t stop there.
Our GoodDay and GoodNight lighting provides wellness benefits for both residents and staff, offering biologically attuned spectrums that can improve health, wellness and daily sleep-wake cycles. As a result, a growing number of senior care facilities are considering specialized LED solutions that can provide wellness benefits for both residents and facility workers, in addition to improved energy efficiency.
Biological LEDs help:
Senior Living Facilities can greatly benefit from Lighting Science’s biological LED lighting, achieving both reduced operating costs through energy savings as well as improved conditions for residents. Higher intensity blue-enriched GoodDay® light in common areas slows cognitive decline, improves sleep and reduces depression. The warmer, comforting blue-reduced lighting of the GoodNight® spectrum in bedrooms helps residents fall asleep more quickly and regulate their melatonin production to achieve more restful nights naturally and without negative side effects that may be experienced using other sleep aids.
The Sisters of the Convent of IHM became interested in implementing lighting to enhance mental focus during the daytime daily service, to enhance sleep at night, and to create a healthier, more serene and productive space in their home. They also agreed to be part of a pilot study to evaluate and prove the impact of the lighting on sleep quality.
