Dealing with dementia is difficult for even the hardiest of people. Seeking a way to improve wellbeing and comfort for its patients during their stay, Bradford Royal engaged with RYGH to see how lighting could help.
With growing numbers of patients suffering from dementia, healthcare bodies are striving to find ways they can provide better care for patients. At the dementia ward in Bradford Royal infirmary, there was an ongoing project to promote person-centred care, improve interaction between patients and staff, and reduce episodes of agitation. The ward also sought to improve patient and staff morale.
RYGH was ready to lend a helping hand. We were able to improve conditions for patients by installing Dynamic LED panel Lighting systems, which create a bright ambience in the day, helping to keep patients awake so that they sleep better at night. This is particularly helpful for dementia sufferers, who often sleep through the day and find it hard to rest at night. In addition to helping patients rest, the bright clear light of the Dynamic Lighting system, coupled with newly installed LuxSpace LED Compact downlights, helps staff to stay alert and focused.
In addition to these upgrades, HealWell systems were installed in patient rooms in the ward. The systems automatically dim and brighten throughout the day, mimicking natural led panel light patterns which affect human sleep cycles. In addition, patients can adjust the hue of the light from their beds, giving them a reassuring feeling of control over their environment. The end result is less agitation, better rest, and an easier job for staff.
