Breaking new ground: the quest for dementia friendly communities – Housing LIN [UK]  – 12 June 2012

“This Housing LIN Viewpoint no 25 – and it’s accompagnying checklist ‘At a Glance’ – examines current policy and practice in relation to delivering housing and neighbourhoods for people with dementia and draws on latest research that considers the role design for dementia can play in achieving the quest for dementia friendly communities.

It offers useful checklists on designing dementia friendly communities and, importantly, seeks to provide a catalyst for developing a robust evidence base in housing with care field thereby ensuring that Housing LIN members are fully engaged when planning, designing and delivering housing that older people want and can break new ground locally.”
