The need for Dementia care is more paramount than ever, especially for elderly people. Research from Alzheimer’s Research UK has shown that the biggest risk factor for dementia is age – the older you are the more likely you are to develop Dementia. Did you know, around two in 100 people aged between 65 to 69 have dementia, and this figure rises to one in five for those aged between 85 to 89?*
With this in mind, care facilities such as care homes have adapted their processes to positively impact the well-being and independence of those living in them. However, one area that can often be forgotten is the surroundings in which your residents live within.
Specific dementia-care projects have demonstrated that cost-effective interventions, such as changes to lighting, flooring and improved way-finding, can have a significant impact on the independence and well-being of people living with dementia, bringing a sense of comfort, familiarity and fulfilment.
Enhancing your environment to suit your resident’s needs can help your care home stay up to date with leading way-finding and memory care products. Many of which have been specifically designed to boost the quality of life as well as enhance your CQC compliance.
At Find, we pride ourselves in designing, developing and manufacturing such products. With over 10 years’ experience, we understand the symptoms and challenges that can arise with dementia and put this at the core of everything that we do.
