Dementia-friendly design for Green Pastures Care Home

18/06/2014

Altro Wood Safety installed at the Green Pastures Care Home Green Pastures Care Home provides care for residents who have dementia.  They wanted to replace the flooring at Green Pastures as well as find a suitable flooring product for a 60 bed care home to be built on a new site.

Green Pastures chose two colours of Altro Wood Safety for its suitability in a dementia care environment.  The flooring was installed in the lounge and entrance of the care home.  Its durability, cleanability and slip resistance were vital for the safety of the residents.  The arch detail was hand cut by the installer, Ideal Flooring, which shows the design flexibility of Altro Wood Safety.

Anthea Speich, Business Manager at Green Pastures Nursing Home, said: "Altro's flooring has completely transformed the foyer and lounge of our care home.  The different tones have effectively demarcated the dining area from the lounge area, and created a space which is easier for our residents with dementia to understand.  The look is cleaner, more modern and stylish, as well as being easy to maintain.  The team who laid the floor was fast, efficient and professional. All in all, a great experience!"
