Note: This is resource 4 of 6 – Environmental Design Resources Handbook
This handbook assists users of the Environmental Assessment Tool – Higher Care (EAT-HC) to systematically review and create better environments for people living with dementia. The focus of the EAT-HC is facilities providing care for the less mobile person with dementia.
There are four parts in the handbook.
- Part 1 ‘Key Design Principles’ contains a description of key design principles.
- Part 2 ‘The Environmental Assessment Tool – Higher Care’ introduces the EAT-HC and provides directions for its use.
- Part 3 ‘Using the Spreadsheet’ contains a guide to scoring the EAT-HC and showing the results graphically.
- Part 4 ‘Applying the Principles’ provides information about the questions contained in the EAT-HC and outlines design considerations for each of the questions.
Our free BEAT-D App (Built Environment Assessment Tool – Dementia) will guide you through an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of buildings used to accommodate people with dementia.
