We use evidence-based principles known to maximise wellbeing for those living with dementia. Good dementia design unobtrusively creates beautiful, yet practical, living spaces.  A well designed physical environment can enhance the quality and enjoyment of life.  In this way feelings of control, identity and independence are maintained and improved.

An Environment Audit is the starting point after we receive any new brief.  We consider how the environment works from the aesthetic, functional and practical ongoing needs of the resident, their families, the staff and importantly, the organisation itself.  

It has been established that a well-designed environment can reduce confusion and agitation, provide opportunities for engagement in meaningful activities, encourage interaction and promote independence.  By incorporating some key design elements, we have been able to see first-hand how people living with dementia can gain more independence and live a much healthier and happier life.
