Dementia Design Survey
A team of researchers working in the School of Applied Social Sciences at the University of Stirling are currently undertaking a project that will help inform best practice in the design of residential environments for people living with dementia and sight loss. This includes aspects of the layout, décor and fixtures and fittings used in people's homes.
Through their exploration of the scientific literature, expert opinion, and the views of people with dementia and/or sight loss and those who support and care for them, they have identified design elements such as colour, contrast, and lighting that might be important in home environments for people with dementia and sight loss.
At this stage of the study, they would like to know what you think about these and therefore would like invite you to take part in a short survey.
The survey can be completed online until the 28th October 2013 and can be accessed using the following link: SURVEY
Should you wish to discuss the study further, the team can be contacted via email or telephone:
