New Vision Health was created in response to demand from clients in the healthcare industry for better products for environments caring for those living with dementia. They needed better provision for helping them with way finding; for resources that would stimulate nostalgia, which helps to soothe them in potentially stressful situations; and for personalisation, for creating a feeling of familiarity. With extensive experience in signage and display for hospitals and care homes, through New Vision Signage, we initially developed a range of products working with Bradford Royal Infirmary on the refurbishment of two dementia wards, which later went on to win a nationally recognised award for interior design. More recently, the innovative care home facility that we worked on - Winnersh by The Abbyfield Society - won the Best New Care Home award at the Building Better Healthcare awards 2017.
In 2016 we won the award for Innovation at the Bradford Means Business awards, in recognition of the way we have diversified into the health industry and created a range of new products.
What started as a diversification for a specific project has now become a specialised area of the business in its own right. New Vision Health now offers a range of products for hospitals and care homes including wall murals, digital aquariums, retro TV, our Picture This sliding display system, memory boxes, Kodak Kodachrome slide display and of course, health signage. These are all designed with a common purpose; to make the experience of being in a hospital, clinic or care home environment more pleasant, easier to navigate, stimulating and familiar.
Our health products meet all the necessary health & safety and hygiene standards required to be used in a healthcare environment and we work with hospitals and care homes to provide products for a range of health environments including dementia, children’s and maternity wards.
The lead contact for Health is Tony Stead. Tony has a wealth of experience in the signage industry and is instrumental in driving our development of health products. Working closely with hospital and care home clients, Tony continues to develop his understanding of the challenges people living with dementia face. He has attended Stirling Universities three day Dementia Design School programme and is always keen to share his knowledge, and learn from architects and interior designers to help improve the environments of those living with dementia and people caring for them.
We are able to help with a range of health projects from assisting at initial design stage to placing products into established environments.
