Arjo launches the Evenda bed range for long-term care
Today, on World Alzheimer´s Day, Arjo is taking yet another step to help improve life for people who live with dementia and their caregivers by introducing the Evenda bed.
Dementia is a condition estimated to affect more than 60% of long-term care residents.1 As the number continues to rise, so do the needs of caregivers and residents. To address their needs, Arjo is launching the Evenda bed – featuring three bed models and a multitude of configuration possibilities.
The Evenda range consists of three models, Sereno, Moveno and Comfio, which provide customisable solutions depending on individual resident challenges and facility preferences.
While the Evenda Moveno is designed for people who are relatively mobile, the Comfio focuses on facilitating care for immobile residents. The Sereno variant is tailored primarily to people living with dementia.
Sereno promotes the creation of a recognisable living space, helping residents living with dementia feel more secure and comfortable. The headboard and other details have rounded elements. Head- and footboard design with colour contrasts can help make the bed more recognisable – and under-bed light can help guide the resident when getting up at night.
“Our aim is to make caregiver tasks easier, while creating a familiar feeling of home for those who live with cognitive challenges. This can contribute to minimising responsive behaviours and creating positive moments in their everyday life,” says Håkan Widerström, Director, Global Product Category Management, Medical Beds at Arjo.
Due to its innovative design, Evenda has been awarded the best possible accreditation rating (class 1a) as a dementia friendly product by the DSDC (Dementia Services Development Centre) at the University of Stirling in Scotland.
