  • Comment on: Architecture tomorrow - healthcare

    Heather McFarlane's comment 22 May, 2015 9:27 am

    The closure of long stay hospital wards and the sustainability of people with complex health needs also has an impact on the design of living environments as home becomes the the hub of healthcare for these individuals and also a workplace for staff. Social housing often considers the need for improved access but fails to take into account sensory and behavioural needs of this population. The incidence of those with autistic spectrum disorder is growing at almost epidemic rates globally as is those with dementia. Future buildings need to support a 'new emerging' population and further conversations between architects,healthcare professionals, carers and service users essential.
