Could Door Knobs Be the Key to the Safety of Dementia and Alzheimer Sufferers?- Tuesday, September 15, 2015

Studies have now found that six in 10 people who suffer with dementia often ‘wander’ off and become lost.  It is not the act of ‘wandering’ off that is usually the problem, it is returning.  A person suffering with Alzheimers may not be able to recall the correct information as to what their name is, their own address and they can often become disorientated, even if they are in a familiar place.   On average, sufferers are able to ‘wander’ 1.5 miles away from the place they were last seen before they are found.  ‘Wandering’ has nothing to do with the level of care structured by the caregiver, but can in fact happen even in the most Dementia or Alzheimer friendly places and with the most diligent of caregivers present. 

‘Wandering’ Preventing Door Knobs

Interestingly though, it has been suggested that door knobs could be key to this.  Obviously, it is not recommended that a person suffering from Dementia or Alzheimers is ever ‘locked’ in a room, but certain door knobs seem to be positive attributes to their safety and the safety of others around them, as well as reducing the stress levels of carers when patients go ‘wandering’ because they reduce the number of occasions that this happens.  Camouflaged door knobs have been recently been trialled.  This is where door handles are painted the same colour as the door or the walls in the room in order for them to not be so prominent and become camouflaged and therefore harder for the escapee to escape.  However, this is not unsafe if there was to be an emergency, as the handle is still prominent from the outside of the door, so access can be permitted easily by the carer or emergency services if needed. Alternatively, child-proof door knobs can be used for sufferers’ safety.  Another idea is to use a door knob which is connected to a device which lets off a signal when a door or window is opened.  This, for example, could be a bell, which can be placed over said door or window so that the carer is made aware if the patient has opened either of these escape route methods.

Choices to Make When Purchasing New Door Knockers- Wednesday, August 12, 2015

New door furniture can improve the aesthetics of your home without burning a hole in your wallet. Here at Handsome Handles, we continue to provide great choice and style when it comes to these products; through our ranges of door knobs, door handles and door knockers.

Taking a closer look at the latter of those, there are a few important things for you to consider if you want to be successful with the purchases that you make. Your available price range and the existing design scheme of your property are perhaps the most important of these.

With that in mind, we’ve taken a closer look at why these and some other relevant factors are important in your purchasing decision process.

Bold or Subtle Door knockers black antique design

Perhaps the most important thing to decide is what sort of statement you want to make with any door knockers that you buy. With such an extensive range of these door furniture pieces, we can provide you with everything from the boldest to the most subtle of designs – leaving you free to make the choices you feel best reflect your tastes.

Shape and Size

To match the right knockers to your doors, it’s important that they look right in-situ; in terms of both size and shape. Delicate and shimmering ring door knocker designs may be better suited to a delicately-varnished light-wood door; whilst a rugged, heavy-set black iron door knocker may be the right option for a contrasting property.

Suitable Budget

As mentioned, the budget that you have available will influence the purchases that you’re able make. Thankfully, we have so many affordable door knockers for you to choose from that this hopefully won’t be an issue. Great prices are available for products of all different shapes, sizes and styles – so we’re confident that we can deliver satisfaction to you.

Door Knockers Material

As we often mention in this blog, the materials you select for your new door knockers are vital with relation to their overall appearance. Looking for something more traditional? Then antique brass, black antique and black iron pieces would be most suitable for you. Or, if you’ve got more of a contemporary eye for property design, then our polished chrome and satin nickel door knockers would be more appropriate for you.
