Dementia and design in the community - community session

This course is available in
All states

This session explores the principles of ‘good design’ as applied to dementia. It allows participants to determine what, if any, design changes they can implement to their environment to enhance participation by a person with dementia. 

Dementia Australia's facilitators have specialist knowledge, skills and experience. 

You will gain knowledge in:

  • dementia and its symptoms
  • the ways symptoms might negatively impact the person’s perception of, and ability to navigate, their environment
  • the 10 key principles of dementia friendly design 

Suitable for: Members of the general public who are concerned about the welfare of people living with dementia and who want to raise awareness of the needs of people living with dementia and support them.  
This session can be delivered onsite on the behalf of community groups and organisations. If you would like to discuss onsite delivery, please contact the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500.
