Older people make up a growing proportion of Australia’s population. The number of people aged 65 years and over has increased from one in every seven people in 2011 to nearly one in every six people in 2016.With the aging trend set to continue the need for Nursing Homes and aged care facilities will increase.
Another trend in our aging population is the increasing number of people suffering from cognitive impairment. More than 50% of residents in assisted living and nursing homes have some form of dementia or cognitive impairment.
Avenue Interior Systems understand the impacts of noise on dementia patients. Of all the senses, hearing is the one that has the most significant impact on quality of life for people with dementia. This impact is because dementia can worsen the effects of sensory changes by altering how the person perceives external stimuli such as noise and light.
Avenue Interior Systems has a range of unobtrusive noise solutions to improve the acoustics in a Nursing Home. Reducing the impact of noise will reduce the anxiety of those suffering cognitive impairment. This will enhance the quality of life for the sufferer and those around them.
