Dementia Care means Making Adaptations to the Home

Dr Shibley Rahman of  Primrose Hill, London, UK shares information on Dementia Adaptations to the home

Excellent website!

I feel that optimal design in built environments… is critical to the quality-of-life of patients with dementia. I think a lot can be done to tie up art and design principles, to maximizing the orientation of patients. This has been shown to be a determinant to the quality-of-life… of patients with dementia. Dementia adaptations to the home is a key to successfully remaining in the home.

I have written on this recently, and I would be most grateful for any feedback:

I find that… architects… designers and artists … are adamant in not letting their creativity become stifled… by people like me who are neuroscientists in dementia!

You will have to forgive me! I am in love with you! Finally, someone with your level of knowledge of the disease of dementia. and actually applying that knowledge to the real world.

One of my pet peeves is we are in the dark ages as far as the care of those with dementia. And you are solving a piece of that puzzle.

I am in the middle of launching a new site, for those caring for a family member with dementia. Not only do I salute your work, I embrace it.

We need to be in touch.
