DEMENTIA CENTRE PILEHUSET, BRØNSHOJ

WORTH AN INSPIRATIONAL VISIT

”Pilehuset” is definitely worth an inspirational visit for everybody in the nursing sector. Leader of the centre, Charlotte Agger, has built the activity rooms of the centre for several years. These rooms take the residents with dementia back in time when they visit them. What is special is that these stimuli and sensory rooms are a daily part of life for the residents. For example, do the residents go to the room with the butcher to choose their meat for lunch. Therefore, we are very proud to be able to contribute to this dementia centre with our health promoting light.

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 installation consists of architectonic surface mounted BaseCare lamps with full dynamic circadian lighting and customised light scenarios. During the process Lightcare helped in advising which scenarios and colour combinations researchers all around the world have found well-suited for dementia sections and what other nursing homes have found attractive as well as combining unique wishes and demands in the nursing home “Pilehuset”.

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 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. Everything done in co-operation with the local electrician “Hvidovre El”.
