Architects and Designers of Senior Living Communities |working on a room layoutIn many ways designing for Memory Care is the same as designing any other living space, but there are some pronounced differences as well. Depending on the cause, dementia can affect perception and physical abilities as well as memory and other cognitive functioning. These are important considerations when designing and decorating for people who have dementia.

If you are reading this you are likely one of a number of firms that specialize in the design and construction of senior care communities. You understand the need to provide a safe and stimulating environment, especially for residents of memory care. We understand as well, and have a variety of products that complement your finished design, products that are sure to impress your clients. Life Stations provide interactive and reminiscent activity for residents, while our special line of furniture provide comfort and accessibility. Wireless Monitoring systems are adaptable and easy to install, while specialized Art objects(coming soon) not only contribute to a pleasant and relaxed decor, but also provide sensory and cognitive feedback.

One marvelous example of value added design: A nursery is a marvelous addition to any Memory Care unit, and more and more we are equiping and providing ideas for these rooms. Doll therapy is one of our favorite non-pharmacological therapies for people with dementia, and a nursery is an ideal way to make this therapy available. Many people wander, often in the middle of the night. Rather than meandering aimlessy about the halls, or looking for a way out, these ramblers can “rock a baby to sleep” , and they will hopefully be ready then to return to bed. We have very realistic therapy dolls at an affordable price.
