Furncare dementia range achieves DSDC accreditation

Lynsey Hutchinson, interior designer and accreditations assessor at The University of Stirling Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC), has announced that Furncare have been awarded the highest possible ratings for their dementia-friendly interiors.

The announcement was made during the recent Dementia Matters webinar hosted by Furncare. The webinar included expert panellists Lynsey Hutchinson and David Wilson-Wynne from The University of Stirling, and Ruth French of Stow Healthcare, Paul Gaskell of Runwood Homes, and Jade Eaglen of Furncare. The Admonere cabinet range was awarded the top A1 rating. The range includes drawer units, bedside cabinets, a dressing table and wardrobes, all of which feature distinctive cut-outs so residents can see what is inside, reducing anxiety levels and the frustration associated with common symptoms of dementia.

Admonere cabinets are part of The Remini Collection – a series of fully coordinated bedroom themes designed specifically for residents living with dementia. In addition to the Admonere cabinet range, it also includes coordinated high back lounge and visitor chairs upholstered in contrasting high-performance fabrics, and a choice of electronic profiling beds, matching curtains, soft furnishings, and accessories.

The Remini Dementia Collection achieved ‘Gold Standard’ rating from the DSDC.

Furncare MD Carl Southall said: “For Remini to have achieved the highest level of recognition possible is a landmark achievement. Coming from one of the foremost centres of excellence for dementia research and development, this is a proud moment for Furncare, and will help to improve the lives of many people living with dementia.”
