Description

E14 - Community Conversation: Designing for People Living with Dementia

This presentation will shift from a traditional focus of “improving dementia care” to “promoting living well.” The speakers will explore opportunities to reconsider how we design spaces for those with Alzheimer’s and refocus to understand each person’s well-being. Opportunities to provide agency to residents during the planning process will be explained. In the words of a resident, “I’m not dying of a fatal disease, but living with a chronic disability.” The paradigm is shifting to promote resident autonomy and well-being, particularly in terms of listening to how and where they want to live and translating that into physical environments.
