Striving to meet the high standards of London Borough of Hillingdon, and Stirling University''s Gold accreditation*, we created a warm and welcoming home that offers vital cues to daily living for dementia patients, easing symptoms and offering respite through careful attention to detail.
Grassy Meadow Court maximises patients'' independence, giving them their own apartment alongside attentive care and communal facilities, such as a professional-standard salon. Apartments feature kitchens that allow clear display of groceries and white goods. Carefully planned contrasts between colour and texture offer important visual aids, helping to distinguish furniture, fittings, surfaces and edges, and clear lines of sight throughout make sure help is always at hand in an environment designed for care and independence.
Six months after opening, a visiting Stirling auditor awarded Grassy Meadow the highest accolade.
*Stirling University developed a set of design standards for care organisations that aspire to be the best in class for dementia sufferers. Only care homes that meet and exceed these standards can be awarded Stirling University''s Gold-ready accreditation for dementia design.
