An awesome work in progress at my dementia care community! People with dementia don’t go through doors that look like they aren’t doors, and that’s exactly what we are working on here. I had a local technical high school print a vinyl decal that looks like a bookshelf. They came in today and helped apply it to one of our doors. The door still opens, of course, but our residents won’t be trying to go in and out of it nearly as often (at least, that’s the goal!) I’m finishing it later this week by heat-drying it and getting the bubbles out.
Rachael’s program is excellent! We are now better prepared to give our residents the care and understanding they need and to support our resident families with confidence. She also helped us with our engagement activities and daily activity calendars. We are now Dementia By Day Certified!
