Promoting independence

“We create our envrionment and our environment creates us” – so architects are fond of saying. And this is certainly true in dementia care where the environment has a profound impact on people’s orientation, independence and well-being.

This little “basket cupboard”, aquired this week, is a good example. It has a recognisable shape that helps people with dementia understandĀ its purpose. On the top we keep fruit and drinks which help reseidents to retain their independence. And the baskets are light so they are easily removed, and resident can utilise themĀ for occupational activities such as folding serviettes.
