Case Study: University of Salford Dementia Hub

Project:Salford Institute for Dementia Hub
Location:Salford
Flooring contractor:Flooring Supply Centre, Liverpool
Products used:Polysafe Wood fx PUR
Polysafe safety flooring was donated by Polyflor to the new Salford Institute for Dementia Hub at the University of Salford.
Polyflor donated approximately 90m of Polysafe Wood fx PUR safety flooring in the Oiled Oak shade which was installed by Flooring Supply Centre, Liverpool. The 300,000 dementia hub, which was designed by Day Architectural, aims to be an outreach centre for the public to access the latest research and ideas about living with dementia, as well as being a working base for the University’s dementia associates and researchers. The centre was designed with help from people living with dementia and features a dementia friendly garden, a visitors’ centre and a special kitchen built to demonstrate the latest dementia friendly designs.

The new dementia hub was opened in May 2017 by Salford-born actor Christopher Ecclestone who discussed his own experiences of his late father’s dementia at the opening event.

Professor Anthea Innes, Director of the Salford Institute for Dementia commented, “The finished hub looks fantastic and we want to say a big thank you to Polyflor for kindly donating this flooring to our project. This slip resistant wood effect design is ideal for use in dementia-friendly environments. We hope to continue our relationship with Polyflor in future and raise awareness in the industry about how to make spaces more dementia-friendly through flooring and interior design choices.”
