The benefits of dementia signage

It may seem strange to put signs around your own home, especially if your loved one has lived there for many years, but for someone with dementia, simple signage can be life changing.

The aim of signage is to assist the person with dementia to  navigate their environment with confidence and dignity.

Signs can help guide someone with dementia around their home and remain independent.

When using signage consider the following;

  1. Use pictures and words
  2. Create a colour contrast
  3. Find the right height
  4. Link colours to rooms
  5. Give direction – arrows can assist with this.

We have a range of ready-made signs, so you don’t have to worry about it.
