Enabling Environments to support independence and well-being in people living with dementia

09 Nov 2020
Theatre 16 Care Environments
Over 850,000 people in the UK are currently living with dementia. Small changes and adaptations to the environment can make a significant difference to enabling people with dementia to enjoy a better quality of life. This seminar will help people to understand basic design principles which can be incorporated in hospitals, care homes and people's own homes to maximise autonomy, independence and safety.
