Research has shown that people living with dementia perceive their surroundings slightly differently than they used to. Visual effects can include a being less sensitive to differences between colours (for example, blue and green) and contrasts.
Because of this, we provide cups, plates, mugs and utensils in various bright colours. In particular, evidence suggests that the colour red has a positive effect on appetite and provides orientation.
‘This is just to say a big thank you for getting the chair to my father so quickly. It has made such a difference to him… He has a big smile on his face when he is in it. I never thought we would get such an improvement at this stage of his Alzheimer’s, but it means the world to see a bit more of Dad still there.’Mrs Tinkley
