Expertise in aged care
Choosing floor coverings for care homes can be challenging. It's about more than just function and performance; it’s about creating an ambience that helps residents feel comfortable and relaxed. It’s our responsibility to provide the safest and most comfortable environments for elderly residents and vulnerable patients. With our thoughtful product design and appropriate product selection, patient stress can be relieved to create a home-from-home.
Your choice of floor covering should also help to improve infection control and create hygienic environments. At the same time, it's essential that finishes stand up to the daily demands of a live, operating care home.
At Forbo, our range of care home flooring products and services help in your decision making. From our free sample service, in-house design support, DSDC-accredited products and our dedicated sales team trained in dementia-friendly design, we'll help you take the next steps.

CPD - The Role of Flooring in Dementia-Inclusive Design
Forbo Flooring Systems has developed a new RIBA-certified CPD, which examines the role of flooring in dementia-inclusive buildings.
This CPD provides accurate and evidence-based information on how to correctly design dementia inclusive environments. It explores the effects and challenges of dementia when designing facilities and outlines the best practice guidance – with a particular focus on flooring.
Developed with guidance from the University of Stirling’s Dementia Services Design Centre (DSDC), the CPD is perfect for anyone who specifies flooring for commercial and public buildings, or for those who have a passion for creating inclusive environments.
