Dementia-friendly life in Benita Home

For providing a care service for people with dementia syndrome in a specifically adapted respectable, safe and homelike environment, a two-story extension with 1600 m2 of floor area and 49 bed spaces was completed in the spring of 2020.

The dementia-friendly building is surrounded by a secure garden with a summer house and four balconies resembling a winter garden, where the residents can spend time in the open air all the year round. Also, the residents can use thematic sitting room spaces offering more privacy, a separate activity room and a sensory room supplied with therapeutic equipment. All rooms are accessible to people with reduced mobility. Our key priorities are maintaining a normal circadian rhythm, providing a sense of security and encourage reminiscence. The environment created specifically for people suffering from dementia provides them with sufficient opportunities for walking, performing their everyday actions and participating in activities they enjoy.
