While you may not have positioned yourself as a Dementia Care Home, chances are that either now or in the future, you will end up caring for someone with dementia. Many organisations will tell you all about the complicated things you should or could do to your bedrooms to make them dementia friendly.
Here we list 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 suggestions go beyond theory, they are low cost, tried and tested principles and have been shown to work time after time. Next time you re-paint the bedroom, take a few minutes to choose a colour which gives a 30LRV contrast the floor and wall colour. And take advantage of recent developments in the world of bedroom furniture. No need to limit yourself to Beech when there are so many stunning finishes to choose from including Walnut, French Oak, Grey, Beige and Natural Oak, at no extra cost.”
That’s the room looking great, while making the environment dementia friendly.
