Following the launch of the 2020 World Alzheimer Report on dementia related design, join this panel discussion and Q&A to hear more about how to embed dementia-related design in all of our developments. Join the report leads, plus hear about two exciting projects – Canada Water, a large-scale urban development in London and Desert Rose House, an Australia/Saudi Arabia joint initiative.
We’ll discuss how to integrate design into national and local dementia plans; how Alzheimer Scotland worked with architects and designers to re-imagine their day care resource centres; hear why it is vital that people with dementia are involved at all stages of design planning; and pose the question of how to make dementia design part of the education curriculum.
We will also discuss how design has contributed to some of the dreadful issues seen in care homes and how design can help mitigate against future infectious disease pandemics.
