Altro Aquarius - Helping heal the path for dementia patients

With an ageing population preferring an amenity rich, inner city lifestyle it's no surprise that the future of aged care will be heading inwards and upwards. High rise apartment buildings will support an ageing generation used to an urban lifestyle. With this ageing population comes an increase in cases of dementia.

Statistics from fightdementia.org.au show that currently there are more than 342,800 Australians living with dementia and that number is expected to be almost 900,000 by 2050.

With this daunting increase comes a challenge to everyone in society. Whether they are coping with difficulties associated with ageing themselves, or relatives and friends. Whether part of health and social services, care providers, government bodies, designers or manufacturers.

Through our work in the healthcare sector over the years, we've become increasingly aware at Altro of the importance of healing or therapeutic environments.

Bathrooms can be the most dangerous area in the home, with water on the floor being a real hazard. Tenants need to be protected from slipping - particularly vulnerable individuals, such as the elderly.

Altro Aquarius safety flooring provides optimum slip resistance in wet and dry environments. It is suitable for bare feet and any type of shoe. With 16 vibrant colours, it is suitable for healthcare facilities or apartment style living where noise reduction will improve the wellbeing of users.
