• This striking a nursing home is able to improve the condition of guests one of its kind
Employees of nursing home every day meet with a lot of sad situations. The most common of these are associated with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Sometimes, for example, older guests require breakfast in the middle of the night, because they have lost the sense of time of day. Or suddenly start to get ready for work, if their internal clocks jumped on a couple of decades ago.
Author of the project, which we want to tell you, Gene Makeshov created a design that allows you to a certain extent to solve these problems.
The basic idea in creating this nursing home design is to completely change their environment. He wanted to encourage older people to spend time away from home, and sometimes allow them to live in the past.
"What if we create an interior that will be similar to the street? - he thought. - What if the inside of the building, we will create the illusion of sunrise and sunset? What if we could create an artificial moon and stars on the artificial sky? What if we build a house that will allow guests to live in the 30's or 40's? " And he succeeded. Plus he added aromatherapy, sound therapy and carpeting, simulating grass. Here is the nursing home:
Instead, each guest rooms here have their own "home" overlooking the "quiet street". Where you can sit out on the "porch", chat with neighbors and walk on their "quiet street"
Instead of the usual ceiling over their heads there is an e-mail, "the sky", which helps guests to better navigate in time. During the day there are sprayed pleasant natural scents like citrus or mint
For Makeshov interior nursing home - it is not just a convenience for the guests. He set out to change society's attitude to old age and Alzheimer's disease
