As our population ages, the number of people living with dementia is on the rise. Dementia is a debilitating disease that can leave a person needing specialist care. It is devastating to watch a loved one lose control of their faculties and become a shell of what they once were. This makes it vital to ensure that anyone with dementia is looked after, including safety – proofing their living areas in order to effectively protect them from themselves.
One way in which dementia sufferers can come into harm is through tampering; they can forget that they have tampered, causing them issues. In particular, tampering with plug sockets can have devastating consequences for dementia sufferers, as there are a wide range of important plugs where unplugging can have dire consequences, such as fridges, freezers or medical equipment.
