Alzheimer’s and dementia affect a person’s judgment, sense of time and place, behavior, senses and physical abilities. Keeping them safe means they need to be in an environment that has taken all these changes into consideration. We spent a whole lot of time reviewing current research and Alzheimer's Association recommendations, as well as consulting with therapists and nurses to create a safe environment that is specially designed to accommodate the changes that persons living with dementia experience.  All of our choices in design were deliberate…a continuous floor without thresholds to trip on, non-glare flooring, adequate lighting, color choices, contrast, individualized doors to aid in room identification, safety bathrooms, and an easy to navigate floorplan. All these choices were thought out and incorporated to help promote safe mobility and prevent falls or injury.
