Improving the Design of Housing to Assist People With Dementia

There has always been the need for  more substantial book on design for housing providers and this led to the publication of Improving the design of housing for people with dementia.  It is written to raise awareness, explain why particular design features are needed, and to give basic guidance on the most important ones.  If housing is designed well it can extend the amount of time a person with dementia can remain at home.  It can also reduce the sort of adverse incidents that lead to hospital admissions, which in themselves can often result in a move to long-term care.
