People with dementia require the right items at the right
time. Whether they have short term or long-term memory issues,
directional signage is required at every point of their journey.
A home or somewhere they visit can become an unfamiliar place for a person with dementia. Even when they have lived there for many years it can become difficult to find items or the way to the toilet, bathroom, garden or even kitchen causing frustration and confusion.
Finds Sticker Pack is an effective way to help ease a
problem and maintain dignity. Supplied in a folder, the product uses an
ingenious, re-usable adhesive allowing the labels to be stored, removed or
replaced as required.
- The labels can be applied to
virtually any surface and removed at a later time without leaving any damage or
- The labels are supplied in a ring
binder where they can be stored safely until they need to be used again perfect
if someone is going on holiday for example.
- If they do start to lose their adhesion
through frequent applications and removal, the labels can be rinsed in warm
water to release residues from the adhesive. After being left to dry the
adhesive will be rejuvenated.
Glenn Knight CEO Training 2 CARE Group and the creator of
the Dementia Interpreters Course comments "These packs are a
revolution for care at home or holidays, respite or just visiting family.
Unusual places are daunting for the person and the embarrassment of an
accident can actually be devastating. A simple, non-damaging and discrete
sticker on a door can change this forever and can be carried with the person
wherever they visit. The way an environment speaks to a person with dementia
will directly impact on them, so if the environment is new to them, they may
just need some help with directional navigation while they are getting used to
it. I love these, I actually think the government should fund these for
everyone who is newly diagnosed with dementia and I hope that you will also see
