Designing Interiors for those living with Dementia
“To make a real difference and give people the respect and space they deserve as adults who have lived a lot of life.”
A motto the design team at Care Home Interiors live and work to as they extol the virtues of their tried and tested ‘practical-based’ designed interiors for people living with dementia.
If Covid-19 has taught us anything it’s that dementia residents need a purpose and a reason to get up in the morning with meaningful tasks to engage with in their living environment.
As designers we need to make the space interactive like a normal home, a place to do tasks in a safe secure way, whilst making them truly beautiful. Why should a dementia resident’s home be any less outstanding than a well thought out and designed care home?
Would you like to develop a better understanding of why interiors are important to residents’ living with dementia? Would you like to learn more about how living space can impact positively or negatively on those that live there? Would you like a greater understanding about the technical elements required to create a dementia specific interior?
If the answer is yes, don’t miss Kerry Southern-Reason talk about designing interiors, and dispelling a few design myths, for those living with dementia.
