Simple changes can help a person with dementia maintain their independence.
Living with dementia can make any familiar or unfamiliar environment feel daunting, leading to distress and agitation. And so, signage is important to our everyday lives. Signs help us to interpret, understand and manage new and familiar environments. We all have a ‘cognitive map.’ A mental picture of the places that are familiar. But unfamiliar environments make us more reliant on signs to help us navigate.
So, what is good dementia signage?
Good dementia-friendly signage:
To be fitted to the door (not the adjacent wall).
A person’s height can reduce by six inches as they age and so signs should be fitted in the line of sight, at 1.3 metres above the ground
We recognise words by their shape. The Sluice Sign has clear lettering which is easy to read and understand; a capital letter at the beginning of a word, followed by lower case.
The Sluice Sign should stand out and not be surrounded by other signs and information.
