Abstract

Color preference was evaluated in 14 non-demented end 10 demented (Alzheimer's disease) elderly residents of a skilled nursing facility. whereas blue (480 mu) was the color most preferred by the non-demented subjects, green (525 mu) was that color most preferred by those with dementia. In addition to reporting study results, factors capable of Influencing color selection are discussed. Health planners should consider preferences for environmental colors, especially for institutionalized persons incapable of changing their own environment.
