Contemporary environments for people with dementia

Author: Cohen, U., Day, K.
Type: Book
Year: 1993


This book analyzes and evaluates 20 facilities, existing and planned, using architectural plans, photographs, and explanatory texts. The authors demonstrate the relationship between design and care for people with dementia by providing information based on actual case studies - "real life" facilities that have implemented and experienced many of the design concepts and innovations promoted by design guides, researchers and professional consultants. Contemporary environments for people with dementia will be of interest to care providers, family caregivers, design professionals and others interested in the creation of supportive and healthy environments for people with dementia.
