Osborne Care Home: Installing a visual walkway for dementia patients

Osborne Care Home in Bristol focusses on the care of patients suffering from dementia so our main concern during this installation was of the safety of the patients. We had to be vigilant on site at all times and we also attended a team briefing each morning from the care home to keep us updated of the patients' movements throughout the day.

As well as cooperating with the care home and working within their time schedule we had to install a flooring that was visually representative of a walk way. We incorporated a lot of colour into the path and designed it to be a visual sign of where is safe for them to walk. The colour and the fact that the new material was safer than the old concrete floor combined to make the perfect path for the patients and staff of the care home.
