Translating the science into benefits

Circadacare translates the science of lighting into practical solutions that deliver real benefits in  dementia care homes.

There’s now a low cost and fast way to upgrade to circadian lighting that can transform your dementia care provision.

USE THE POWER OF LIGHT TO IMPROVE CARE FOR THOSE LIVING WITH DEMENTIA

As we age, our eyesight changes dramatically, resulting in reduced visual acuity and colour discrimination and a slowing in the rate at which our eyes adapt to changing light levels and contrast. Studies have shown that these changes can lead to disrupted circadian cycles and sleep patterns if not addressed by the lighting design in care environments for older adults and those living with dementia.

The human circadian rhythm

Light is the most potent external synchronisation stimulus for the human circadian cycle.  Without the right colour and intensity level of light at the right times of day, the human circadian system weakens and production of hormones critical to the sleep-wake cycle is affected. Disrupted human circadian rhythms cause negative health & wellbeing impacts, whereas supported  human circadian rhythms with circadian lighting systems are proven to improve the wellbeing of older adults and people living.

The scientific evidence in support of circadian lighting systems is already compelling and continues to increase.

“Our research shows that circadian-effective light, when carefully specified and implemented, can positively impact those living with Alzheimer’s and related dementias in assisted-living and long-term care facilities.”

— Dr Mariana Figueiro, Lighting Research Center

The Circadacare solution

Advanced software algorithms manage the whole system for every 24-hour cycle without the need for staff or technical intervention. Individual rooms can be adjusted or customised for specific requirements, and the entire system can be connected to other systems such as nursecall, monitoring and building management systems so circadian care can become part of a smart integrated building.

Staff and residents use the lights as they normally would and the Circadacare system ensures the maximum benefit can be achieved through its network of smart lights. With all the intelligence in the software, a single system can be used for just a few rooms or buildings with 250 rooms, with each room having independent control.

Circadacare systems can be easily updated through software without the need for further hardware to adapt to changing requirement and remain future proof.

Energy efficiency is also assured with energy savings of between 20% to 40% when compared with non-dynamic single colour LED lights.

An upgrade for your dementia care

Whether it’s only a few rooms or a whole care home, our upgrade solutions are flexible to suit every project and budget.

New circadian lights replace conventional lighting with a wide choice of styles and designs and are connected to the circadian system using dedicated and reliable wireless technology. This allows for fast installation and replacement of existing lights with minimal impact to residents and carers.
