Earlier EQUAL Projects

Designing Dementia-Friendly Outdoor Environments

From 2000 to 2003 Elizabeth Burton and Lynne Mitchell, OISD:WISE were funded by EPSRC to conduct a research project on designing the outdoor environment, to improve the quality of life of older people with dementia. From this research they developed the concept of Neighbourhoods for Life - neighbourhoods that people with dementia find easy to access, find their way around, use and enjoy, enabling them to continue to live at home.
