Dementia-friendly Environments

Our award-winning Environments Consultancy can help you use your existing environment more effectively, plan a new facility or refurbish an existing one.

  • Onsite education
  • Training on how to use assessment tools
  • Support for creating changes, big or small

A dementia-friendly environment is enjoyable and meaningful, taking into account a person’s lifestyle, background and interests, as well as being familiar and recognisable.

We provide onsite education, training on the use of environmental assessments and support staff and leadership to recognise and plan meaningful environmental changes.
