This week at Kingland House we have been pimping our zimmers! Inspired by this article on the BBC, we got the arts and crafts team together and started work!
People living with a dementia can find it difficult to see their zimmer frames and so decorating them in bright colours can help them. Personalising them with their names is also a fantastic idea so people can recognise their own. It is said that people are also more likely to use them and feel prouder of them if they are attractive, rather than a dull grey frame which everyone has.
Look at how well we decorated them!
