3 Tips for Designing a Dementia Friendly Care Home

3 Tips for Designing a Dementia Friendly Care Home

1. A well designed space must first and foremost be “fit for purpose”. Make sure that your chosen designs enhance and improve the lives of the residents living in your care home.

2. Lighting and signage are really important and should never be considered as an extra. There is no point furnishing a lounge beautifully if the resident cannot find the lounge or see the furniture when they arrive.

3. A well designed space within a care home will aid independence and maintain a residence dignity. It will also improve the working conditions for the staff as they will have more time to interact with the residents and spend less time cleaning up.
