Hand-painted art by Sharron Tancred transformed into door disguise for Alzheimers.
The Wicking Dementia course advocates door disguise for dementia. As a result, we have created this series of wraps based on our proven exit diversion strategies. Importantly, we offer you our unique point of difference in that these murals were originally hand-painted by our artist and decorator and wayfinding and exit diversion expert, Sharron Tancred. Sharron’s worked with dementia experts since 2009 and in 2021, completed the Wicking Dementia Course. Hence, our exit diversion murals align with the Wicking door disguise suggestions. Over time, we have developed exit diversion philosophies based on murals installed within care homes. For instance, suggesting to your resident, that they can see there, but not go there. Also, reinforcing the principles of Eden Design to imbued an out and about feeling for a sense of happiness and involvement. At the same time, carefully positioning cues to engage interaction such as a kookaburra, rooster, lizard, or spiny fish that says stay away- from the door handle or opening door. Alternately, a dementia-friendly dog or cat to encourage your residents to move way from your danger zone to pat them in the safe zone! In these ways, our door disguise for dementia encourages movement, brings nature in and relieves anxiety.
The Mural Shop stresses 3 principles that support the delivery of door disguise for Alzheimers. Firstly, we prefer art over photography and a matt finish for a less corporate more natural atmosphere. Secondly, each door disguise for dementia has been crafted to blend with almost any door architecture. Indeed, we even take into account luminosity, contrast and shadows to empower your residents to perceive our cues. By transforming a door frame into a window or believably framed scene, we distract your resident from the stress of exit seeking. Lastly, our memory cues are relevant to the murals setting. To illustrate, a country or coastal scene reinforces a traditional, quaint or rustic framework which could enhance your decor style! Alternately, an elegant city view can support a modern decor style. Finally we have created other collections of dementia room door wraps including the Art and Beach Hut Series, Rustic, Modern, Ethnic and Classic Australian. The Art and Beach Hut Series offer alternative exit diversion strategies.
“Sharron’s dementia unit design techniques certainly have had a positive impact on the behaviour of the residents in the dementia wing. Residents are no longer going for the door, instead they are admiring and walking away from the door. Good outcome.” – Regis Aged Care, Wellington Point.
