Forbo Flooring Systems has developed a new RIBA-certified CPD, which examines the role of flooring in dementia-inclusive buildings.
Developed with guidance from the University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Design Centre (DSDC), the CPD is designed for specifiers of flooring for commercial and public buildings, or for those who have a passion for creating inclusive environments.
Donna Hannaway, Care Segment Manager at Forbo Flooring Systems, said: “I am excited to announce our new RIBA-certified CPD, which focusses on the role of flooring in dementia-inclusive designs. For many years, we’ve worked hard to develop inclusive flooring options to help specifiers feel confident in creating spaces that will benefit everyone.
“With the help of the DSDC, we’ve devised this CPD to help those in the field to go one step further and gain a stronger understanding of a number of important core design principles. If you’re working in the field, or just want to improve your knowledge on this subject, it’s not to be missed.”
The CPD can be delivered as a live webinar on a bespoke basis from one of Forbo’s trained advisors.
As Forbo’s account managers have been through the DSDC built environment design training, they have the knowledge to explain with clarity why different environments can affect how a person living with dementia perceives the world.
Those booking the first 30 webinars will receive a complementary DSDC guide (while stocks last). A PDF and a recording of the presentation can also be requested free of charge. Whilst the CPD will be delivered virtually for the foreseeable future, there will still be time for questions to be asked at the end of the session.
