Quality of Life – Acoustics

  • Of all the senses, hearing is the one that has the most significant impact on people with dementia in terms of quality of life
  • As hearing is linked to balance this also leads to a greater risk of falls either through loss of balance or through an increase in disorientation as a result of people trying to orientate themselves in an environment that is overstimulating and noisy
  • Acoustics in the bathroom can be particularly difficult. Flowing water, and the flush of the toilet, for example, can create a confusing or sudden noise
  • Within the dining area the noise from a television or radio that often is not listened to or watched, staff talking to each other and the clatter of dishes and cutlery all contribute to a sense of disorientation
  • Noise at night can result in disturbed sleep which in turn can lead to problems during the day, such as lack of concentration, and difficulty communicating and performing during the day
