We create solutions that improve quality of life for residents in long-term care and contribute to higher work satisfaction for carers. This is done by working in partnership with our customers to better understand the challenging needs of today’s long-term care environments, enabling care providers to raise the quality of care.

Clinical evidence for person-centered dementia care​

Solutions in dementia care​

As the number of residents living with dementia continues to rise, so does the need for support - both at a carer and facility level. We support carers and their residents with a person-centered approach to essential routines, designed to reduce moments of friction around the clock. Play the video to learn about non-pharmaceutical solutions available in dementia care.


Facilitate smoother activities of daily living

In an environment where intimate care routines can entail a moment of friction, our solutions are designed to make every-day tasks easier for carers and more comfortable for residents.


Enable one-to-one interactions


Many Arjo solutions are designed to be used by a single carer, are easy and intuitive to use, and integrate across the care pathway. This enables healthcare providers to deliver one-to-one care – spending more time on quality interactions and less time on task-based necessities.


Support a calm and dignified care environment

Equally important to activities of daily living is the need to create and capture positive moments that promote contentment and joy. Extending beyond essential routines and bodily needs, our solutions can bring wellness, calmness and dignity to residents and benefit the overall care environment.

Residents' needs

Dementia care is delicate and complex, filled with nuances and challenges. We recognise it is not fueled by the pursuit of a cure. Rather, it is care rooted in the fundamental idea that behind each challenge is a unique individual with an unmet emotional or physical need that requires understanding and assistance.

Play the video to see how quality of life can be maintained, episodes of responsive behaviour can be minimised and efficiency can be achieved¹.

Designing for dementia

Empowering movement is at the heart of everything we do. And it’s at the core of our design principles for both acute and long-term care products. Our design principles ensure that we
continue to meet the evolving needs and challenges of today’s care environments, with a focus on the criteria shown above.


Supporting person-centred care

Creating a foundation of support that allows you to focus on a person-centred approach to care is key to enhancing quality of life for a person living with dementia. The principles of person-centred care assert the human value of people living with dementia. It is an approach that recognises the individuality of the resident, their personality and how their life experiences influence their response to their condition. It also emphasises the importance of relationships and interactions with others. Person-centred care is internationally recognized as a best practice model of care for people with dementia² and is recommended in international policy and practice guidelines³.

While caring for a resident with dementia can be incredibly rewarding, the nature and complexity of the condition means that as it progresses many people develop responsive behaviors that can create challenging situations and moments of friction in the care environment.
