The physical design of the Lodge focuses on 4 major components, adapted from the Person-Directed Dementia Care Assessment Tool.
An engaging and pleasant atmosphere for PWD, staff, family, and visitors, to create a homely atmosphere. Every corner of each Home has sufficient natural lighting, including the visitor’s lounge, nurse’s station, common room, and each bedroom.
2. Space Configuration
The living spaces are cleverly configured, providing an internal and external environment that is safe, secure, and easy for residents to navigate and make the best of their remaining abilities. A variety of spaces are provided, some for quiet conversations, and some for larger group interaction, as well as spaces where residents can be by themselves.
