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.
While some of our healthcare environment products can be bought off the shelf from our shop, the majority are bespoke or curated for your specific space and the best way to understand how they can work for you is to talk to us. David Shannon is our health lead and your point of contact for all signage and healthcare products. David can help you specify the right dementia friendly and health products to create the best environment for your service users, whether developing a new space or adding to an existing one.
David has extensive experience in the signage industry across all roles including production, sales & marketing, project management and design & development. He has a particular specialisation in wayfinding and an in-depth knowledge of complex public buildings including hospitals, clinics and care homes.
