“By 2020 we would like to see an increased number of people with dementia being able to live longer in their own homes when it is in their interests to do so, with a greater focus on independent living.” – Prime Minister’s challenge on dementia, 2020.
Join us to see how small changes within your housing offer can significantly impact on an individual being able to live well with dementia. We’ll share experiences of design from a professional and personal perspective, the role of technology enabled care. There will also be a chance to hear the experiences and learn from other housing organisations who have been working to become dementia-friendly over recent years.
