Environmental Design Resources Handbook
This collection of resources can support those who wish to improve environments for people living with dementia. This handbook contains the full suite of resources that are utilised for DTA’s Environments Consultancy.
We introduce the reader to a systematic way of looking at the built environment and provide a number of tools that guide the user to an understanding of what needs to be changed, and how the change might be accomplished.
Within the suite of resources we provide information and background on the key design principles, plus assessment tools specific to residential, acute and indigenous settings. Also included is an updated handbook and tool on the systematic framework for reviewing public and commercial buildings.
This handbook consists of a suite of 7 resources. Access the individual resources below:
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.
