The municipality of Silkeborg got funds in 2018 which they chose to use on health care lighting on the dementia section in Skovly nursing home, Bryrup. We have delivered and installed full dynamic circadian lighting in each of the 10 homes as well as in the corridors.
The control of the lighting is through Lightcare OS, which is a newly developed and ground-breaking software with the ability for the users to define and individualise the lighting by concrete needs. This breaks with former closed systems.
The installation consists of architectural surface mounted BaseCare with full dynamic circadian lighting and customised light scenarios. Lightcare helped during the process to give advice to which scenarios and colour combinations scientists around the world have found suitable in sections for dementia and what other nursing homes have found attractive as well as unite it all in unique wishes and needs.
The fully automatic full dynamic circadian lighting is validated by scientists and modified by the feedback from the employees. It includes scenarios for relaxing in the tv-room in a greenish tone as well as free-from-blue night light, so the residents maintain a stable circadian rhythm and sleep pattern, while the staff can do their evening and night tasks.
The solution was CARE-COMPLETE which includes: Tuneable white, red, green, and blue LED which among other things can make lighting scenarios varying from candle light to blue sky (1.200K-12.000K), therapy boost, calming sensory and snoezel scenarios by means of the 16,7 million colour combinations. It all comes with a user-friendly touchscreen universe with the possibility for operation and over-steering via press several places in the nursing home.
❛ Evening and night lightning have given less walking at night and more rest in the odd hours, where the staff is reduced to a minimum.
❛ The residents wake up and seem more rested and re-vitalized than before.
❛ The light is generally nice to be in. Unfortunately, the funds were not enough to make the best solution (lighting everywhere), so we hope to get other funds so we can get all the benefits in our lightning.
