Silksworth Extra Care Sunderland
ACA+I sensitively designed a modern and refreshing apartment, tailoring it to aid couples, where one of them may be experiencing early-onset symptoms of Dementia or similar.
The design takes into consideration the rich, fulfilled lives that people have experienced and provides a respectful and dignified place to live. The demographic of the area is very cultural and arty. Consequently, art pieces from a local artist have been installed to create visual reminders and trigger memories.
Materials have been thoughtfully selected to provide a calming atmosphere. Furniture and equipment with different functions are highlighted in different colours to aid the day-to-day obstacles people may experience. Colour selections were inspired by iconic paintings of the local surroundings. Floral prints on curtains provide an extra element of visual stimulation.
