Soltofta nursing home

Safe and stylish bathrooms for dementia care

Altro Aquarius 

Soltofta is a new nursing home in Malmö, Sweden for people with dementia. There are 72 apartments over two floors. Many people with dementia are vulnerable; therefore, it is important to guarantee the security of their accommodation. This means, among other things, to prevent slipping accidents and facilitate hygiene and cleaning. In addition to the duty of care of the residents, nursing homes must, by law, protect the staff.

Altro Aquarius was chosen for the resident bathrooms. It provides optimum lifetime sustained slip resistance in shoes or barefoot. Slip resistance is critical in a nursing home bathroom, as residents are usually barefoot and the assistant staff have shoes. This means that healthcare professionals can focus on assisting in bathing, drying and dressing residents without worrying that they or the resident could slip.

“It feels safe to walk on the floor. It is also easy to clean,” said Petra Östling, Assistant Nurse, Soltofta nursing home.

Altro Aquarius was developed for lasting performance in shoes or barefoot. Many colors in the range were designed with dementia residents in mind.

Achieving high slip resistance values across all test methods, and provides optimum lifetime sustained slip resistance in wet and dry environments. Altro Aquarius has been extensively tested with a variety of shoes and contaminants to ensure top performance in high-risk environments and it’s also remarkably easy to clean.
