Nick Seemann

Nick's role at Dementia Training Australia

Nick is based in NSW and specialises in meaningful and enabling residential environments.

His professional work has focused on supporting community organisations and social service providers with both new construction and refurbishment projects.

Nick’s interest in designing housing to support older people and those with dementia began with his own experiences of seeing family members move into environments that were not supportive of their needs.

“My work has had a recurrent focus on improving existing aged care facilities, in recognition that current buildings often exacerbate the disabilities that have caused elderly Australians to move into them.”

Nick is a practicing architect and the author of several design guides for residential aged care design.


 

What you do at DTA

Together with Fallon, I run the DTA Environments team. I design and deliver online and face-to-face workshops that focus on how environments can better support people with dementia.

What’s your favourite part of your job?

Working through how the material can be most effectively delivered.

How would your colleagues describe you?

Reflective

What’s a usual ‘day in the office’ like for you?

I work part time at DTA, so most days I am running an architectural practice. At the moment at DTA, I am focusing on writing online courses.

What’s your favourite font and why?

Herculanum, because it reminds me of Asterix comic books.

Something on your bucket list that you’d care to share?

I’d like to go on a cycling holiday in Europe.
