Specialist consultants Architectonicus Metamorphosen has scooped a major dementia care award.
The Worcester based consultants won the ‘Exceptional Contribution to Dementia Care’ award at the NEC Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo 2018 last month.
Architectonicus Metamorphosen has developed a revolutionary new model for the care of vulnerable people, particularly those living with a dementia, which uniquely integrates a highly evidence based human-first approach to well-being centred activity with a building and interior designed specifically to support each individual activity.
Two new day support projects designed by Architectonicus and consulted on by Metamorphosen, ‘The Ness Centre’ in Teignmouth and ‘Good Brain Gang’ Bristol demonstrate the effectiveness of this entirely new UK model.
Director William McMorran said the next step was to create an exemplar residential pilot which will transform the image of care in the UK; potentially creating a template for a truly therapeutic and inspirational resource for vulnerable people, their families and the entire wider community.
Due to the design and support model’s evidence base it is trainable, repeatable and recognisable.
Co-Director Roland McMorran said: “We very much see that there is enormous scope for a complete transformation in attitudes to care and support.”
Through the model’s re-invigorating and recognisable principles Roland said that there was scope for it to become a normal and refreshing part of every community.
