No doubt about the lighting, and the affect it has!
But WHY don't care's just take the bother and put a simple nice low light warm light in there rooms? I do plus decorate it homely and always with flowers and plants. The affect of take him into this room every night at the nursing home and spend time there is VERY rewarding! Even the nurses feels happy to walk in there!
