Living with Dementia
This entry was posted on February 11, 2013.
If you or someone close to you is living with this condition, we have a selection of specialist dementia products that can make life that little bit easier.
It is important for people with dementia to live independently, for as long as possible. This will improve their overall quality of living by giving them the opportunity to enjoy the activities their accustomed to whilst they are still able to do so.
It is also for this reason that the ability for individuals with dementia to take care of themselves becomes such an integral part of their daily lives. Although small things, like forgetting where you put your keys, may become more frequent, we can help make a few things simpler.
Colourful and contrasting mechanisms form an essential part of the design of products for dementia. Our toilet aids include brightly coloured seats that come in both a raised and standard design, making them easy to identify and use. Incorporating handrails and brightly coloured towels can also make the bathroom more functional – you could even use ‘flush’ or ‘wash your hand’ signs as a reminder of what to do next.
Another product that we stock that has become increasingly popular is the Memory Box. They are ideal for someone who may be moving to a care home to fill with items that reflect memorable occasions in their life. In addition, the Memory Boxes will encourage communication between patients, their families and carers, as well as allow them the opportunity of having something sentimental in their room to remind them of things they may have forgotten.
Although not all people with dementia suffer from incontinence, our incontinence products can still help to avoid any unnecessary accidents and are particularly useful when spending the day out or in an unfamiliar place.
