Find is passionate about working with Care Homes across the country to create dementia-friendly environments.
Living with dementia means coping with a range of issues. By enhancing the environment to compensate for deteriorating skills a number of benefits for residents and staff can be achieved.
With Find’s recommendations, the environment becomes more enabling for its residents and good CQC ratings can be obtained.
What can changing the environment achieve?
Customers who have implemented a dementia-friendly environment have seen a 50% reduction in incontinence, a 60% reduction in agitation and aggression, a 70% reduction in slips, trips and falls, 79% reduction of sedentary behaviour.
By offering more choice of spaces encourages movement that gives people a sense of achievement and enjoyment, improves levels of hydration and nutrition, improves sleep patterns and reduces anxiety.
Doing nothing is no longer an option. Find makes it easy to make positive changes.
How does changing the environment benefit you?
There are a number of additional positive outcomes for Care Homes when they implement a dementia-friendly environment, for example,
- a cost-saving due to a reduction in drug and medication use
- a cost-saving due to improved continence (staff time savings, laundry, incontinence products)
- fewer violent incidents and more patient independence resulting in improved staff morale, less absence and better attrition
- Improved CQC ratings
