Creative Conscience 2019: Commended and Shortlisted
Create a wayfinding system for people
with dementia living at Ashley Grange
Nursing Home. Someone with dementia will often have a decrease in navigational skills making the transition of moving to the unfamiliar environment of a care home
much more difficult.
Community is a dementia wayfinding solution that uses the memorable childhood game of Monopoly to help residents navigate through the care home independently.
Dementia can often make people remember long term memories from their childhood. The game Monopoly became the inspiration for my wayfinding system, recreating road names and using a similar contrasting colour palette and iconography to create themes within the home.
