Dementia Friendly Furniture Solutions
With a growing number of specialised dementia care facilities opening throughout the UK, Renray healthcare has developed a range of fit for purpose and stylish furniture collections specifically for people living with dementia.
A culmination of in-depth research, great design, technical excellence and quality production, these dementia friendly, homely, and refreshingly different collections incorporate a number of unique features designed to make life a little easier for your dementia residents.
Important features and benefits of our Dementia ranges
We undertook detailed research and in-depth discussions with a number of leading clinical and academic experts to ensure our range meets the varying needs, including stimulation and functionality, of those living with dementia. Our dementia ranges have been produced with important built in features and benefits.
These include :-
Perspex panels to help with visual impairments and features such as open viewing sections in wardrobes to hang clothes for the next day
Contrasting, clearly visible, easy to use handles
Use of subtle, simplistic, fabric patterns (as strong and detailed patterns can cause confusion to some, but not all, dementia sufferers).
Use of items that can hold memory or “cue” information to stimulate the residents
Wood grain that is plain and simple and not heavily patterned
Vinyl wrapped curved, smooth edges and corners to ensure safety
Easy wipe clean surfaces to assist infection control
Stable and comfortable seating enabling residents to use for prolonged periods
Strength and durability for all furniture items
