As we begin the countdown to Christmas, CHP this month will showcase the best new care home products and services of 2021.
Kicking off our countdown today, care home flooring specialist Forbo Flooring Systems shares how its new Acoustic Collection helps minimise unwanted noise.
With various studies documenting the negative effects unwanted noise can have on peoples’ well-being, Forbo Flooring Systems launched its new Acoustic Collection at the beginning of 2021.
While excess noise can affect us all, the impact is even greater for those living with dementia. Forbo understands the importance of reducing noise to positively contribute to the health and well-being of occupants in care homes. Indeed, if noise is not controlled and people are struggling to hear speech or engage in conversations, this can lead to social isolation and loneliness.
Noise can be controlled in many ways, including through the specification of soft furnishings and surfaces. However, incorporating acoustically engineered flooring solutions, like those found in Forbo’s Acoustic Collection is recommended as it will not only minimise sound, but it will also help to reduce cleaning and maintenance costs.
