DEMENTIA DOOR WRAPS – why are they necessary at all? 

As Tailored Artworks looks to help Aged Care Companies perfect their assisted living environments, it is sad to research the statistics and note that dementia is on the rise.

Creating warm environments full of memory cues and colours are vital.

DEMENTIA [dɪˈmɛnʃə] NOUN medicine: A chronic or persistent disorder of the mental processes caused by brain disease or injury and marked by memory disorders, personality changes, and impaired reasoning.synonyms: mental illness · madness · insanity · derangement · lunacy · senile dementia · Alzheimer’s disease · Alzheimer’s · softening of the brain

 

It might be that the ladies do less laborious physical exercise and may consume more sweets, who knows, but dementia affects us all, male and female.

The World Health Organisation says, “Dementia is an umbrella term for several diseases affecting memory, other cognitive abilities and behaviour that interfere significantly with a person’s ability to maintain their activities of daily living.”

Although age is the most substantial known risk factor for dementia, it is not a normal part of ageing.

The WHO (World Health Organisation)  states that the 5th leading cause of death in the world after heart disease and stroke, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and diabetes is dementia.  “Deaths due to dementias more than doubled between 2000 and 2016”, … “compared to its spot as 14th in 2000.”

 

 

Dementia is such a growing problem that we see an increase in the construction and renovation of assisted living facilities due to long waiting lists for beds. 

With our parents ageing and our having worked in dementia facilities since 2009 painting exit door murals, we at Tailored Artworks are stepping up to lend a hand to our deserving elderly.

      Most welcome, Jony. Research is proving now that dementia is preventable through diet and exercise. It is the Western diet, high in sugar and less than 2800 steps per day that can trigger the protein deposits (scaring) in the brain. So, look after yourself, ok.
