For individuals with cognitive impairments such as dementia it can be difficult to read standard signage, and in unfamiliar environments such as hospitals and care homes this can cause significant stress and anxiety, especially when it comes to finding the toilet.
The Find Signage Dementia Disabled Toilet Sign has been specifically designed to help disabled individuals with dementia more easily find the toilet, enabling you to reduce residents' levels of stress and anxiety.
Designed for Dementia
Find Signage is designed to cater to key cognitive factors which usually influence those with dementia, enabling the signs to specifically help those with cognitive impairments find their way in your facility. The sign provides residents with multi-sensory recognition – touch, pictorial and colour – giving them a clear indication of what the sign is for.
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Getting lost in an unfamiliar environment can cause most people to become worried or anxious, but when it comes to individuals with dementia this issue is amplified. It can make what is meant to feel like their new home instead feel like a maze with no exit. To reduce this issue, this clear, easy to locate and easy to read sign helps you provide those under your care with a clear indication as to where the disabled toilet is.
Available for Different Environments
To help provide as many people as possible with the benefits of Find Signage, the signs are available to meet the needs of different environments. The available options are:
Standard signs are designed for care home use with a durable construction for demanding environments and hidden integrated fittings to reduce risk of vandalism. Hygenus signs have been specifically designed for use in hospitals and are made from materials that meet infection control standards.
Self-adhesive are ideal for low-traffic areas and sliding toilet doors due to it's 1mm thickness. Because it would likely damage decor if removed, it's also suitable for use in an individual's home where permanent signage may be needed.
