What is False Windows?
A false window is exactly as the name suggests; an artificial window frame that can display a range of different interchangeable outdoor scenes.
Why use False Windows?
A false window mounted to the wall creates a feeling of the outdoors. Because you can easily slide image panels behind the window frame, these can change as often as you like. This can be particularly useful for depicting changing seasons and helping people with dementia connect with the passing of time.
Other changeable displays include false fireplaces, Picture This, memory boxes and reversible mirrors.
Where would you use False Windows?
False windows are particularly useful for areas that no have no natural light or external windows but can be used in any space within a dementia-friendly environment.
