Interior space design for dementia patients should be comfortable and compensate for the impairments experienced by those with Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia.
What is Dementia?
Dementia is a general term that covers a wide range of conditions. Alzheimer’s Disease is the most common form of dementia. Vascular Dementia is the second most popular. Dementia results in cognitive impairment.
Those in the early stages of dementia may experience confusion, forget appointments, repeatedly lose their wallet or purse, or have difficulty preparing meals or travelling outside their immediate neighbourhood. Dementia is progressive.
In the later stages of dementia, individuals lose their ability to carry on a conversation and control movement. They also may be unable to respond to their environment.
