Logandene will feel like home for many service users and foster a sense of belonging. The corridors are well lit and signposted so residents can find their way around. The kitchen and lounges are designed to create a sense of community and familiarity. The bedrooms allow for personal items, so service users can feel comfortable and safe in surroundings which aid recollection. The garden has a potting shed and raised planters to make activities easier and encourage independence. Finally, therapy rooms have been designed in collaboration with Occupational Therapy staff to provide appropriate activity and stimulation which upholds dignity and wellbeing.
Logandene also features a new sensory room where staff will be able to provide gentle stimulation therapy of sight, touch, smell, taste, sound and movement tailored to fit the needs of the service user and resident. The adjustable light panels, fibre optics and a sound system create a soft calm ambience, while furnishings aid relaxation.
