Aged Care & Dementia

Designing for aged care, including those living with Dementia, brings its own unique set of challenges. Whether it be designing for a healthcare or residential environment, avoidance of common design pitfalls can be achieved by following our set of evidence-based design principles. With our research and experience, designers should feel supported and confident in creating safer spaces, reducing resident’s anxiety and promoting their self-identity and dignity within personal spaces. With cleaning and maintenance regimes becoming so critical in this sector, our specialist durable and anti-microbial products reduce risk of infection.
