Dementia Friendly Signage
Dementia Friendly Signage, Wall Murals, Wallpaper and Door Wraps. We have designed specifically our dementia-friendly door wraps and dementia wall murals. Our designs enhance a Care Home and Hospital Department for people living with Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease.
Our products help to make life with Dementia easier, presenting a more comfortable environment for patients, helping them to find their way around more effectively and with less stress.
Dementia friendly signage solutions for daily living
Creating a dementia-friendly environment is crucial to supporting individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s patients, as it improves their independence, reduces agitation, and helps them easily navigate their surroundings. Dementia-friendly signage is a key aspect of such environments, providing essential information and wayfinding assistance in a clear and easily understandable manner. We manufacture dementia-friendly signage products specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of those living with dementia.
Our dementia-friendly door wraps are customisable with various images and background options. They help orientate dementia patients by clearly identifying rooms such as the toilet, bathroom, kitchen, lounge, and dining room. Similarly, dementia-friendly wall murals can be tailored to display family memories and engaging activities, providing a comforting and familiar environment for individuals with dementia. Exit diversion door wraps are another valuable product in our selection, designed to camouflage exits and reduce wandering incidents by adjusting the appearance of doors to blend with their surroundings.
In addition, we offer dementia-friendly signs for various areas, such as the toilet sign, bathroom sign, and lift sign. These wayfinding signage options are designed with contrast, clear font sizes, and tactile elements, addressing the visual impairments and cognitive challenges of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. By incorporating these dementia-friendly signage solutions, we can create a supportive and safe environment that caters to the specific needs of those living with this condition.
Dementia Wall Murals
Our visually appealing Dementia friendly signage, Dementia wall murals and Dementia-friendly wallpapers trigger reminiscence as well as help to brighten up dull or bland environments. Custom dementia signs create extra positivity from patients, staff and visitors.
Much research has gone into the benefits of dementia friendly murals and wallcoverings by the Alzheimer’s Society and others in the UK. All of our products are in line with the latest recommendations in this field of study.
While we offer several stock designs of murals, we can supply any custom design. We encourage Care Homes to consider something relevant to the local area.
What are Dementia Door Wraps?
Our Dementia Door Wraps magically transform dull corridors into a colourful street with differently coloured traditional-look painted wooden doors. Having different coloured dementia doors help to make it easier and less potentially stressful for patients to recognise and find their room. As well of our range of patients rooms door wraps, we also produce a variety of diversion dementia door wraps. Our diversion wraps will deter patients from trying to open doors like fire escapes. Our diversion wrapped doors disguise these exits, so we design these as a telephone box or alcove or similar.
Dementia Signage is Highly Rated by Care Home Inspectors
Some of the best feedback on our Dementia Friendly Signage work has come from Care Home Inspection teams. Care Homes we have supplied have been reporting the positive comments from inspectors on the difference that carefully planned dementia signage, door wraps and murals can have.

We manufacture our door wraps with an anti-glare matt laminate which protects the door wrap and makes them last. In addition to longevity, laminating means you can wipe down our door wraps with detergents and cleaning products without damaging the product.
Exit Diversion Door Wraps
In addition to our dementia friendly door wraps, we also offer exit diversion door wraps specifically designed to minimise confusion and prevent wandering in dementia care environments. By camouflaging exit doors with visually appealing images and blending them with the surrounding walls, these wraps can help reduce anxiety and create a more comfortable space for patients and their family members.

Dementia Friendly Wall Murals
Dementia friendly wall murals are designed to create a comforting and engaging environment for individuals with dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. In our product selection, we offer a range of options and images suitable for various settings, such as care homes, hospitals, and memory care facilities.
Our specially designed wall murals aim to aid reminiscence and ease wayfinding for people with dementia. The murals feature stimulating graphics and a selection of themes, such as kitchen, dining room, activities, and lounge areas, to provide a familiar and friendly atmosphere. Using images that evoke memories, we can create a sense of familiarity and connection for individuals dealing with cognitive impairments.
In addition to evoking memories, our dementia friendly wall murals can serve as an effective wayfinding tool. We incorporate dementia friendly signs with clear text and symbols into the design to assist with navigation. For example, adding a toilet sign, bathroom sign, or lift sign ensures that individuals can move about the facility independently.
Furthermore, our wall murals and signage options cater to various symptoms and needs of those living with dementia. From providing named door signs for rooms and offices to using appropriate background colours and images to minimise confusion, we strive to create products that promote individuals’ independence, safety, and wellbeing.

Dementia Friendly Signage is a crucial aspect of creating a supportive and easily navigable environment for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. The following products fall within this category:
- Dementia Friendly Door Wraps: These door wraps feature various colours, making it easier for dementia patients to identify rooms and locate essential amenities like the toilet or bathroom.
- Dementia Friendly Wall Murals: These wall murals provide an engaging and stimulating visual backdrop for dementia patients with various activities, memories, and images of dining rooms or family units.
- Dementia Signage: These user-friendly signs provide essential wayfinding information for dementia patients, with easily legible text and icons, such as toilet signs, bathroom signs, lift signs, and memory care lounge signs.
- Exit Diversion Door Wraps: These door wraps help to minimise confusion and potential disorientation by providing a unique appearance for exit doors, promoting independence and reducing unnecessary disruptions.
Wayfinding signage plays a critical role in creating dementia-friendly environments. It provides a clear and helpful navigational tool for those experiencing cognitive impairments, offering guidance from one area to another with minimal confusion and stress. Utilising easy-to-read text, clear icons, and consistent design across all signage, dementia patients are empowered to maintain their independence and mobility with ease.
One of the key factors in designing effective wayfinding signage for dementia patients is to ensure that the text is large enough for easy readability. This generally means increasing the text size by 50% in comparison to standard signage. Other crucial elements include:
- Using high-contrast colours.
- Incorporating easily recognisable symbols.
- Designing signs that blend seamlessly with the environment.
In addition to supporting mobility within a facility, dementia-friendly signage also aids in promoting overall mental wellbeing and a sense of familiarity for dementia patients. Incorporating images of nature, local landmarks, or other relatable themes on wall murals and door wraps helps create a comforting and familiar atmosphere, which aids the overall support and treatment for dementia and Alzheimer’s patients.
In summary, dementia-friendly signage is vital in creating inclusive and accessible environments for individuals with cognitive impairments. Effective wayfinding signage can greatly improve the daily lives of dementia patients, their families, and caregivers by facilitating easier navigation and fostering a supportive and comfortable atmosphere within the facility.
Memory Care Options
Our primary aim is to ensure that spaces cater to the needs of dementia patients, Alzheimer’s patients, and those experiencing memory impairments. We will examine specific areas such as the lounge, kitchen, dining room, and activities area.
The lounge is a crucial space for relaxation and socialising. Dementia-friendly signs can enhance the experience and independence of individuals in lounge spaces. Examples include using clear, recognisable images and backgrounds that foster familiarity. We can add labels with the room’s name and relevant details to assist with wayfinding.
Dementia-friendly signage helps individuals maintain their independence while mitigating potential risks in a kitchen area. We can use relevant images as backgrounds, clearly label kitchen appliances, and provide touch-friendly signs to aid those with impairments. Remember that signage signbox options are essential for creating a more accessible environment.
Dining rooms should be designed to encourage family meals and socialising. This objective can be achieved by utilising dementia-friendly signs and wayfinding signage to guide individuals towards the room. Elements such as clear names, background images, and touch-friendly signs can create a more inclusive environment for everyone.
The activities area is where individuals with dementia can partake in various memory-enhancing activities. It is essential to provide clear and concise signage directing them to the area, offering options and relevant details. Dementia-friendly signs can encourage participation and create a safe, engaging environment for various activities.
By considering these key areas and incorporating the necessary signage, we can create a more accessible and dementia-friendly environment.
