Dementia-friendly wetroom, Manchester City Council
This wetroom was specially designed to meet the needs of the client living with dementia. We worked with the client and occupational therapist to carefully consider the layout, products and finishes to improve the client’s independence and safety, including using contrasting red tiles to clearly define the shower and toilet area, which helps the client to locate them efficiently. Research has shown that Red is one of the most easily perceived colours by people living with Dementia and Alzheimers. We also installed a flat fit floor covering in a single block colour so the customer would not perceive any changes for a step or see flecks or dimples in the flooring as dirt.
