An acute medical ward for the elderly received funding from the Kings Fund to redesign and decorate the whole ward. The new design was specifically to create a calming, appealing environment with emphasis on 'dementia friendly' features.

Outcome

Less falls occurred on that particular ward. Patients and families were very positive about the environment.
