E20 - Universal Design Means Designing for People with Dementia

The evidence-based principles used in designing for people with dementia align with, and can enhance, universal design principles. These are demonstrated through the development of the Dementia Friendly Community – Environmental Assessment tool (DFC-EAT). This tool was developed to provide a systematic framework for reviewing public and commercial buildings and identifying areas for improvement through design. It is organized around the key design principles and the typical parts of the journey a person takes when visiting a building. Come see how this tool is being applied in Australia and its design applications for your local community projects.
