Care home signage is directional signage used for wayfinding in a care home environment. We offer signage solutions that can be used in dementia and non-dementia care home facilities.
People living in care homes need to be able to locate key areas within that environment and recognise spaces. This will include personal areas such as their own rooms and communal areas such as activity rooms, dining rooms and bathrooms. Signage for people living with dementia needs to incorporate a range of measures to communicate, including visual ‘cues’, colour and contrast theory, the relationship of text and imagery and even positioning on the wall.
Signage for people who don’t have dementia can also be used to make a care home environment feel more like a real home and less clinical such as ‘street-style’ signage and nostalgic signage.
Care home signage can be used throughout a care home environment in personal and communal areas.
