Now this is a great idea for the Memory Support Units (MSU – locked wards in nursing homes) for people with dementia.
The idea is that the resident selects their fave colour for their door to their room. They have a better chance of remembering a colour than a number.
It saves staff having to find people’s rooms for them. It also brightens up the ward and gives it life.
It is a cheap and quick positive impact in dementia world.
