This presentation will look at the evidence-based principles of designing for dementia and provide examples of how to make changes.
A good environment can reduce confusion and agitation, improve wayfinding and increase social interaction. A poor environment can increase confusion, distress and levels of disability for people living with dementia.
If you cannot attend in person at the Brisbane QUT Kelvin Grove venue you can attend at a Videoconference site.
