Whether it's a sunny day or calming decor, the environment around us has a real impact on our quality of life. This is especially true for people with dementia who may be experiencing sensory difficulties or may become confused in unfamiliar places.
Designs that connect people with their past and promote a personalised care approach to help reduce anxiety and confusion can be particularly beneficial.
Two-thirds of people in care homes have some form of dementia and numbers of those with the condition are soaring so delivering quality care across the board is vital.
