Environment and Design for Dementia
“Symptoms of memory loss, confusion and difficulty learning new things means that someone with dementia may forget where they are, where things are and how things work.” – NHS England
People living with dementia occupy 25% of hospital beds and account for 75% of all care home residents, representing a significant challenge to the health and social care estate. Small changes to flooring, signage and lighting can have a significant impact on quality of life for both patients and their carers.
Away from a care setting, rethinking the way we design our homes, neighbourhoods and workplaces can also help people with dementia live independently for longer while remaining socially and physically active.
The Environment and Design for Dementia Conference will explore the many ways we can create safer, more welcoming and familiar surroundings for the growing number of people living with dementia. See how small adjustments can greatly improve patient outcomes, learn how new technology can improve the patient and carer experience and understand how we can work with service users to rethink and redesign environments.
