  • Comment on: News feature: Are architects doing enough to tackle dementia?

    Damian Utton's comment 30 April, 2017 5:57 pm

    For architects to do enough to tackle dementia requires an understanding of the principles behind the specific design features mentioned in this insightful feature: Design should compensate for the impairments of dementia (cognitive, senior and physical impairments), create opportunities for human contact and maximise the independece of people who live with their dementia (there is no such thing as a 'dementia sufferer')

    These principles are applicable to all building typologies and, as highlighted in the Dementia Friendly Housing Charter, the inside and outside of buildings, the spaces between buildings and their location.
