  • Design in dementia is the key in my humble opinion

    Well-being


    Excellent blog post

    I feel that optimal design in built environments is critical to the quality-of-life of patients with dementia. I think a lot can be done to tie up art and design principles, to maximizing the orientation of patients, which has been shown to be a determinant of quality-of-life of patients with dementia.

    I have written on this recently, and I would be most grateful for any feedback:

    I find that architects, designers and artists are adamant in not letting their creativity become stifled by people like me who are neuroscientists in dementia!
