Circadian Plus in the Care Environment

Managing the colour spectrum and intensity of lighting is particularly important in environments for elderly care.

As the human body ages, both day and night vision deteriorate. Moreover, light can often cause confusion if there is a glare or an unusual pattern. This is heightened when a person suffers from some sort of cognitive condition, such as dementia or another severe memory problem, which The Alzheimer’s Society reports around 80% of care home residents experience.

Many care home residents are surrounded by artificial light 24 hours per day. This emphasises the importance of good lighting, and the potential impact that switching to a bio-adaptive lighting system could have upon a care home resident’s quality of life.

 Benefits of Circadian Plus

Improved sleep pattern

White light exposure (with blue content) gives the greatest effect to the body for alertness and ultimately, for sleep at the end of the day. Prolonged poor exposure to white light during the morning will mean that sleep patterns suffer. Also restricting white light exposure later in the day will have the adverse effect, making residents feel although they are ready for bed.

Less risk of developing certain medical conditions

Research has suggested that getting the correct amount of light and sleep can significantly reduce the chances of developing serious medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes!

Improved mood

An improved sleep pattern, in turn, provides an improved mood. In addition, a study in at a Sacramento Municipal Utility care home in the US, reported that a pilot installation of bio-adaptive lighting recorded a reduction in resident behaviour episodes with one dementia resident showing an improvement of 41%.

Improved staff retention

Our research has suggested that one of the biggest issues for care home Managers is maintaining staff members. However, the installation of Circadian Plus will mean employees are happier at work, have improved sleep patterns and most importantly feel that their employer cares about their wellbeing, therefore, having a positive impact on retention levels.

Less risk of developing certain medical conditions

Research has suggested that getting the correct amount of light and sleep can significantly reduce the chances of developing serious medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes!
