Dementia friendly environments

Dementia friendly environments

Our immediate surroundings can have a huge impact on our quality of life, particularly when trying to make sense of the world around us. 

We work with academic partners and some of the leaders in the architectural and design industries to create care home environments that help people living with dementia to live as independent and stress-free a life as possible.  Our design team is passionate about creating supporting and enabling dementia environments which balance colour schemes, wayfinding and points of interest to create a safe, homely and easily understood environment. 

You also have the option of personalising your room with familiar furniture, pictures and other belongings and to fill a memory box with special items which will also help us get to know you and you’re whole family.    We will work with you to customise your environment in a way that protects personal identity, supports you to make the most of your capabilities and helps you to live as independently as possible.
