Polyflor Specialist Care brochure
POLYFLOR has recently launched a new Specialist Care brochure to present some new dementia-friendly flooring principles developed in collaboration with the University of Salford’s School of the Built Environment.
These new principles pinpoint how specifiers can select flooring for care homes and healthcare environments that’s dementia-friendly and along with suitable lighting and signage can contribute to less stress and anxiety for people living with the condition.
The principles have been discussed and agreed with the Salford Institute for Dementia Associates, a group of people living with or caring for someone with dementia. Polyflor’s principles also refer back to the overarching principles laid out in Health Building Note 08-02 issued by the Department of Health.
The brochure also features a wealth of case studies where Polyflor flooring has been used in the dementia care sector to contribute to improved wellbeing.
As a manufacturer of flooring suitable for dementia care facilities, Polyflor is also a member of local Dementia Action Alliances which is committed to transforming the lives of the 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, and a longstanding partner of the International Dementia Design Network at the University of Salford.
