This folder contains a series of resources for assessing environments that are used by people with dementia. The information they contain is evidence-based, where possible, and reflects international best practice.
The aim of the dementia design audit tool is to provide consistent guidance on designing environments for people with dementia. It can be used for refurbishment projects or new buildings. It should be used in conjunction with the DSDC's range of design publications, details of which can be found at http://dementia.stir.ac.uk/design/audit-and-accreditation.
Although this tool can be used informally during the design process, users are encouraged to undertake specific training in design for people with dementia first. Formal accreditation of a building following audit is available directly from DSDC. More information about our specialist design audit service can be found at www.dementia.stir.ac.uk.
