A major cause of restlessness for people with dementia is the lack of stimuli they experience in their daily lives. Based on scientific studies on the way in which color and movement affect the brain, we studied the effects of subtle, visual stimulation. We developed a series of reflecting objects that use the natural movement of daylight to create impulses that do not require intact cognition, thereby offering the people the opportunity to respond in the “now” without seeking for the assistance of their memory.
This multidisciplinaire evidence based design project is commissioned by Cordaan and Stimuleringsfonds and realized in close collaboration with residents & care staff of Cordaan
