Dementia Friendly Interior Design
As interior designers for care homes we perhaps operate from a different start point than care home furniture suppliers in that we design with the purpose as the start point, the surroundings as the framework to work within & give little initial focus to the dementia care home furniture. Our design for dementia is instead a holistic approach that sees our trained staff look at every aspect of the needs of people with dementia.
It is not an understatement to say that design for dementia has to take account of every sensory requirement of the occupants of the facility, and that interior design for care homes is a process for skilled individuals who are more than just suppliers of dementia home care furniture.
Our team of dementia healthcare interiors specialists are experts in the specific needs of the healthcare market, where dementia is the pivotal factor in designing healthcare interiors. This is to say that whilst great design is first in our goals, and then to provide an environment where the people living in care with dementia, who are our ultimate clients, will experience it is of equal prominence in our thoughts & aspirations.
We do not design for the procurement manager, not the financial accountant, as their needs are best met by meeting the requirements of those that will benefit most from the built environment, we are catering for & therefore enhancing the lives of those end residents. This in turn means that our designs are truly a ‘win win’ for everybody involved.
Because we are of the size and reputation that we are in the dementia healthcare interiors market we also find that care home furniture suppliers actively seek our input, and that our knowledge is sought out by those looking to differentiate their homes from others.
