Centering care on body and mind

Today, approximately 50 million people worldwide live with dementia, with the condition affecting more than 60%¹ of long-term care residents. 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-giving environment. As the number of residents living with dementia continues to rise, so does the need for support – both at a carer and facility level. For carers and their residents living with dementia, we deliver non-pharmaceutical solutions that facilitate a person-centered approach to essential routines designed to reduce moments of friction around the clock.

Facilitating smoother daily living activities

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 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 can be integrated across the care pathway. We strive to enable carers to deliver one-to-one care with less time focused on task-based necessities – and more time for quality interactions.

Supporting a calm, dignified care environment

Just as 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.
