Sensory rooms: Designing interventions to support dementia care

The rapid growth of an ageing population, together with the rising number of people affected by dementia has highlighted an urgent need for effective interventions in supporting people with dementia, in particular in relation to leisure time and the provision of meaningful stimulation and activities. This event brings together academic researchers and Dementia Care professionals to explore and debate issues of environmental design on the quality of life and well-being of people with dementia, as well as on their carers and support staff.

This work will be of interest to professionals from care practice, policy makers, and designers as well as those individuals caring for relatives living with dementia.

The exhibition and the event are the results of an interdisciplinary research project led by Dr Anke Jakob, Post Doctoral Researcher, Designed Environments Research Group, Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture, Kingston University in collaboration with Dr Lesley Collier, University of Southampton and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council UK (AHRC).
