Dementia Enabling Environments Project (DEEP)

Resources to promote dementia enabling environments at home, in residential care, and in the garden

Jason Burton, AAWA & Prof Richard Flemming, NSW/ACT Dementia Training Studies Centre

This project has developed an online information clearing house for resources relevant to dementia enabling interior design (including simple home modifications), architecture, and garden/landscape design (www.enablingenvironments.com.au).

It has developed training materials and workshops for consumers, service providers and design professionals, and has made headway getting dementia into university architecture training courses and design standards. This project concludes in June, 2013, but will be sustained in some form through AAWA and the DTSCs.

For support, information, education and counselling contact the National Dementia Helpline on 1800 100 500, or visit the website at www.fightdementia.org.au
