Our Health Products

False fireplaces help create a homely, familiar room setting in a hospital or care home without any of the health & safety risks or maintenance of a real fire.

What is a False Fireplace?

A false fireplace is as it sounds: a graphic representation of a fire and surround that can display an image of a roaring fire or embers.

Why use a False Fireplace?

A fireplace can transform an otherwise clinical-looking hospital room into something much more welcoming, homely and familiar. For those living with dementia, this feeling of familiarity can be a great comfort. Because the image of a fire burning and a fire out are easily interchangeable, it can help to indicate the season or weather which can help a person with dementia connect with the passing of time.

Other changeable displays include false windows, Picture Thismemory boxes and reversible mirrors.

Where would you use a False Fireplace?

False fireplaces work particularly well in reminisce rooms but can work in any dementia friendly environment in a hospital or care home.
