Thank you so much to Johnstones Paints for taking the time to deliver a very enlightening session on Dementia Awareness during Dementia Action Week. Stuart Leigh, National Category Manager at Johnstones Trade is also a Dementia Friend Champion. He gave us a very informative insight into living with dementia, by engaging in a couple of reflection exercises, that made the attendees really think about how they can support people living with dementia from a personal and professional stance. This was followed by an in-depth presentation by Donna Taylor, a Johnstones Trade Colour Consultant, on the benefits of a well-considered colour scheme and an understanding of the different Light Reflective Values (LRVs) of surfaces in a room, from floor to ceiling. Working with our supply chain partner we are confident in being able to offer alternative colour specifications to our customers and decorating environments which increase the independence and sense of well-being of residents or patients living with dementia.
