Year: 2001

Abstract:

In this article Calkins reviews some of the common themes about the current state of knowledge about environments for people with Alzheimer's disease, found in the papers by Lawton, Charness & Holley. She provides more concrete examples of links between research and design and presents a more systematic view of the physical and social environment, which may serve as a foundation for future research on care settings for people with dementia.
