The importance of lighting design to support the needs of the elderly
Lighting is a fundamental requirement for any business, yet using the right type of lighting is often given a low priority. Unwittingly, this can have a dramatic and detrimental effect on an environment’s ambience, especially if the wrong product is installed.
In care homes for the elderly and similar facilities, correct lighting ensures that patients and caregivers feel safe and at ease and this can improve their mood and wellbeing. The care home environment is a commercial property but is one that needs to relax patients and feel homely but provide, extra light to support reading and activity areas. The sight deterioration of residents requires a brighter light than would be needed in a standard home.
According to Dementia Services Development Centre by “the time people are about 75 years old they need twice as much light as normal lighting standards recommend, and nearly four times as much as a 20 year old, in order to see satisfactorily”.
The right lighting products clearly need to be in place to support the different recreation activities.
