Engeline Plaggenmarsch, location director IJsselheem, says: The result was amazing! In the middle of the summer, we started the pilot at a living room in Wilhelmina van Sonsbeeck. During the pilot we saw that:

The residents slept through the night again and during the day they felt fit and active and were in a better mood;

✅ the nightly restlessness decreased by 60%;

The additional lighting is experienced as pleasant by residents, relatives and staff alike.
