Lillian Faithfull Care Logo

A new identity for Lilian Faithfull Care

The Challenge

The Lilian Faithfull charity had recently rebranded its residential care homes to identify with its new strategic direction, offering more than just homes for the elderly but also a range of new care facilities, including day care, becoming Lilian Faithfull Care. Having acquired additional care home facilities and launched its new services, the brand needed to effectively notify the local community of its name change but also retain the trust that the brand had built under its previous name. A further signage need was to develop the interior décor of the care homes, creating a relaxed and comfortable environment for residents.

The Solution

Working directly with the charity’s management, FASTSIGNS developed a range of new, uniform, exterior signage for all residential care homes within the group, using a combination of post and panel signs and temporary banners to promote the group’s new day care facility. They also helped make Lilian Faithfull Care’s message mobile by using vehicle vinyl graphics to brand their vans.

Taking direction from research into care for dementia sufferers a range of bold and vivid canvases were developed using suitable scenic photographs to help enhance the residents’ sensory experience. The images were printed on to a matt finish canvas to reduce glare and stretched over frames for a clean and contemporary look. Printed vinyl was used to wrap the lift doors in an effort to disguise the lift entrances in order to keep residents safe and similar scenic imagery and bright prints were used for this décor feature.

The Result

The overall development of the exterior signage helped Lilian Faithful to effectively rebrand its residential care homes and present a unified brand across each of its facilities. In line with this, the investment into its interior décor has improved the overall homeliness of the facilities and helped strengthen the trust between the care facility, its residents and its families.

Ian Baller, Facilities Manager for Lilian Faithful Care said of the lift wraps, they have had a massive impact for our residents suffering with dementia, who easily get frustrated and confused when they see a lift that they cannot operate. Disguising them with stunning imagery and pictures has really helped us to keep our residents safe and has also softened an area that previously had quite an industrial feel.

Following the success of these projects FASTSIGNS continue to work on other exciting developments within the Lilian Faithfull Care Group.
