BIRKELUND NURSING HOME, JUELSMINDE

CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS

The municipality of Hedensted applied and got resources from SATS-funds, resources which they chose to use on health care lighting in a closed dementia section. Leader of district Jette Roest applied for the resources and later leader of district Ditte Teist and the staff got involved in the process. We have delivered and installed full dynamic circadian lighting in corridors and common area.

The control of the lighting is through LIGHTCARE OS, which is a newly developed and ground-breaking software with the ability for the users to define and individualise the lighting by concrete needs. This breaks with former closed systems.

The fully automatic full dynamic circadian lighting is validated by scientists and modified by the feedback from the employees. It includes scenarios for relaxing in the tv-room in a greenish tone as well as free-from-blue night light, so the residents maintain a stable circadian rhythm and sleep pattern, while the staff can do their evening and night tasks.

The installation consists of architectural surface mounted BaseCare with full dynamic circadian lighting and customised light scenarios. Lightcare helped during the process to give advice to which scenarios and colour combinations scientists around the world have found suitable in sections for dementia and what other nursing homes have found attractive as well as unite it all in unique wishes and needs.

The solution was CARE-COMPLETE which includes: Tuneable white, red, green, and blue LED which among other things can make lighting scenarios varying from candle light to blue sky (1.200K-12.000K), therapy boost, calming sensory and snoezel scenarios by means of the 16,7 million colour combinations. It all comes with a user-friendly touchscreen universe with the possibility for operation and over-steering via press several places in the nursing home.
