For those with dementia, standard signage can be incredibly hard to understand. As a result, unfamiliar environments like hospitals and care homes with inadequate signage can cause significant stress and anxiety. Because of this it's vital you do everything possible to help those under your care find their way.

The Find Signage Dementia Sluice Sign is designed specifically to help individuals with dementia find their way in your facility more easily, helping to both reduce your residents' levels of stress and anxiety and aiding them in finding where they need to be.

Designed for Dementia

Specifically designed to cater to a range of key cognitive factors that typically influence those with dementia, the sign helps those with cognitive impairments find their way throughout your facility. The sign provides residents with multi-sensory recognition – touch, pictorial and colour – to give them a clear understanding of what the sign indicates.

Reduce Stress and Anxiety

The stress and anxiety being lost in an unfamiliar environment can cause in those with dementia can make what is meant to feel like their new home instead feel like a labyrinth with no exit. This clear, easy to locate and easy to understand sign helps you give those under your care a clear indication as to which room is the sluice room, reducing the anxiety a new environment can cause and helping reduce the risk of them entering a room they shouldn't.

Available for Different Environments

To enable as many people as possible to reap the benefits of Find Signage, the sign is available in different options to meet the needs of different care environments. The available options are:

  • Standard
  • Hygenus
  • Self-adhesive

Standard signs have been designed for care homes and feature a durable construction for demanding environments as well as a hidden integral wall fitting to reduce the risk of vandalism. Hygenus signs have been designed for use in hospitals – they are made from materials that meet infection control standards.

Self-adhesive signs are great for low-traffic areas and, because they would likely damage decor if removed, where permanent signage may be needed. Please note that self-adhesive signs are only available in size Small.

For a full breakdown of the differences and suitability of each option, please consult the Specifications tab above.

Different Colours Available

The signs are available with four different coloured backgrounds:

  • Blue
  • Green
  • Yellow
  • Red

It can be difficult to ascertain which colour is most effective for those under your care, so multiple colour options help you choose what you feel is best for your residents.
