Developed in partnership with Rodd Design, ode is new way of thinking about fragrance. It uses aromas in homes and care homes, to help revive people’s appetite, especially when they’ve got conditions that might affect this, such as dementia.
This work is important: it is harnessing scent to help people live more independently while bringing pleasure, as a lovely fragrance invariably does. And scent is so much more subtle than alarm reminders someone asking you to eat. With ode, we hope to make day-to-day living easier for the person affected, their carers and families.
Supported by the Design Council and Department of Health as part of the Living Well with Dementia Challenge.
