Creating a Dementia Friendly Environments Course
Learn how dementia affects a person and creates a new strange world
Dementia can impact on an individual’s sensory orientation. Sensory signals that enter the brain may get mixed up or misinterpreted. This means it can affect a person’s eyesight, taste, smell, what they hear and touch. It can affect they way a person perceives the world around them. Creating a dementia friendly environment for individuals can help promote independence, and also help in retaining skills and abilities for longer.
What does Creating a Dementia Friendly Environments Course cover?
In this course, we will explore types of dementia that impact on vision, such as Posterior cortical atrophy dementia and dementia with Lewy bodies. We will also include the importance of risks assessments within the environments and what we can do to improve and create safer spaces. We look at many practical ways we can help adapt environments so that people with dementia can feel safe and reassured. This includes information around:
- Rooms within the home — bathrooms, kitchens, lounges, how we can make adaptions for these places to be safer
- Navigation around stairs or steps
- Smells in the environment
- Colour schemes
- Benefits of sensory rooms and quieter spaces
- Grab rails
