Dementia is not something that just happens to everyone.
When someone living with the challenges of dementia is trying to make sense of the world around them, we understand that their immediate surroundings can make all the difference to their quality of life. We've worked hard at Tyndale House to carefully create a dementia friendly environment by including, dedicated quiet areas, spaces and resources for individual and group activities, that will promote meaningful interaction and purposeful activity between people who live here, families and staff and matt flooring to help with mobility. Age appropriate and culturally sensitive decor will promote well being along with appropriate light levels that help normal sleep patterns.
We understand how colour contrasting food and crockery, to encourage eating and drinking. Installed noise absorbent surfaces such as carpets, cushions and curtains promote a calm, safe and secure environment, neutral and calming walls, floors and furniture have been installed, with carefully placed mirrors to create an environment that promotes orientation. As part of our commitment to creating a dementia friendly home we also hold weekly dementia drop in clinics at Tyndale House to the public to help raise awareness within the community and teach people how they can help someone suffering with dementia.
