You may not have positioned yourself as a Dementia Care Home, but chances are that either now or in the future, you will care for someone with dementia. Many organisations will tell you all about the complicated things you should or could do to your lounge to make them dementia friendly. Here are 4 simple suggestions that need not cost a fortune, but can make a significant improvement to the environment you care for them in.
Tristan Brassey of Berwick Care Interiors said, ‘‘These practical suggestions are low cost, tried and tested, and work every time. Next time you re-paint the lounge, take a few minutes to choose a colour which gives a 30LRV contrast to the floor and wall colour. And don’t forget to explore new, exciting arrivals in the fabric world, although do avoid heavy patterns.”
That’s the room looking great, while making the environment dementia friendly.
