A comfortable armchair is part of a homely interior. This is also important for people with dementia. This piece of furniture helps define the atmosphere of the room. With a few basic rules, Moments Furniture helps you in this choice.
- Choose a traditional model. The armchair must be recognisable to the person with dementia. So no parts or legs in chrome or stainless steel. It will just make them anxious or insecure.
- Take into account a good sitting height and depth. You have to be able to stand up easily. In terms of hardness, it is best to choose a seat made of stiff foam. The armrests must also provide support over the full depth and be at the right height.
- Allow enough time to choose the right upholstery colour. The user must like it, but the colour must also provide sufficient contrast with the living environment.
- Go for tactility. Feel and experience the material of the fabric. This helps with the sitting experience.
