At Christmas time we should think of those wonderful people who work in care homes, every day of the year, making life good for frail older people.
Do we really know if changing the colour and intensity of light makes a real difference in care homes for dementia?
When you live with dementia, people sometimes impose art on you, and you are forced to experience art that is not to your taste. One contentious area is the use of murals as “art” in care homes. I use scare quotes because I’m not sure if it is interior decoration masquerading as therapy.
