Polyflor offers dementia-friendly flooring CPD seminar

Polyflor, the UK's commercial and residential vinyl flooring specialist, has launched a new CPD seminar on the topic of dementia-friendly flooring approved by both the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Society of British and International Design (SBID). 

Contributing towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) credits for both RIBA and SBID members, the ‘Specification of Dementia-Friendly Flooring’ seminar is one of three informative sessions on the subject of specifying vinyl flooring which can be delivered by Polyflor representatives throughout the UK, free of charge.

New for 2016, the hour long dementia-friendly flooring session includes helpful information on understanding more about the condition and the appropriate design principles which need to be considered when specifying flooring for dementia-friendly environments.

Polyflor’s CPD offering also includes sessions on the ‘Specification of Vinyl Floorcoverings’ and ‘Specification of Safety Vinyl Floorcoverings’. These SBID and RIBA approved CPD seminars cover the different types of vinyl floorcovering and their applications, relevant industry standards, installation and maintenance. 

As a manufacturer of flooring suitable for dementia care facilities, Polyflor is a member of local Dementia Action Alliances who are committed to transforming the lives of the 850,000 people currently living with dementia in the UK. Polyflor is also a longstanding partner of the International Dementia Design Network at the University of Salford.

Polyflor has also recently launched a brand new specialist care brochure to present some new dementia-friendly flooring principles developed in collaboration with the University of Salford’s School of the Built Environment and Institute for Dementia, which are also contained within the CPD.
