New dementia friendly housing in Sefton
One Vision Housing have completed dementia-friendly refurbishments of three of their Independent Living schemes as part of a £1m plan to make all their schemes more energy efficient and inclusive for people living with dementia.
Included in these new developments is Kenyons Lodge in Maghull. The property has been given soft colour schemes, with feature walls, carpets and different wallpaper throughout to make each floor easily identifiable and therefore easier to navigate for those living with memory loss and visual impairments.
The residents were consulted throughout the refurbishment, and chose the fabrics and colours to create a sense of well being and luxury within the communal areas.
One Vision Housing and Sovini Property Services have been holding afternoon tea events to thank the residents for their patience and cooperation during the refurbishment works.
OVH Independent Living Manager, Suzanne Meylan said: “With dementia affecting more people in our communities, it’s important we respond to this need and create communal living environments which promote a sense of wellbeing and comfort for our customers.”
