As winners of the 2019 Exceptional Contribution to Dementia Care award, we are proud of the recognition we've received for innovative colour and design tools such as the new Dementia Colour & Design guide. For over 60 years we've been developing colour, product and design principles to help to create more supportive healthcare environments. We collaborate with healthcare professionals and academia to explore colour and design solutions that enable clinical and support teams working in hospitals and care homes to discharge their work more productively, supporting them to achieve their goals. We believe that expert application of colour, product and design specification is an effective tool to augment the care administered by healthcare providers. We know that well placed colour and design can improve patients quality of life, reduce feelings of stress or anxiety and aid recovery. There are also the more obvious benefits derived from facilitating improved way finding and navigation for those with either visual impairments or even physical disabilities. Our holistic approach to inclusive design recognizes the need to consider all aspects of the given space, such as; indoor air quality, light, colour, acoustics, odour and thermal comfort, all important variables within the environment - all can have a direct impact on the way we might experience or enhance a space to enrich and promote occupant wellbeing. Together with building industry experts BRE and Halsall Design, and Loughborough university, we have achieved a ground-breaking Dementia Friendly demonstration house that will enable the care sector to explore a range of the latest interventions that can contribute to more supportive environments for those living with dementia. Meet us at stand D910 to get a copy of our evidence-based Dulux Trade Dementia Friendly Colour Palette and Design guide and discuss your next project with our design team.
