Their bedroom should help a person with dementia get into their own bed each night, and sleep there for as long as possible. It should also be as familiar as possible.
If you care for someone with dementia, you might need to raise the bed height and use a firm mattress to help the person get on and off their bed by themselves.
If you want to use lights to make it easy to find the toilet at night, try soft night lights.
Loose rugs and mats are easy to trip on. You may need to rearrange furniture to make sure there is a clear walking path to and from the bed.
You can find out more by reading the Dementia Australia help sheet about adapting your home.
