Updating and Activating an Evidence-based Design Lexicon for Aging and Dementia: Notes from the Field

December 2023

The design of the built environment can be leveraged to improve outcomes for older adults, especially those with dementia. In this webinar, presenters will share insights gleaned from a collaborative endeavor to identify outcome-driven evidence-based design strategies. This initiative expanded the reach beyond the confines of long-term care, engaged students in the review of evidence-based literature, and pilot tested memory-care design strategies in renovation and new construction conditions. Presenters will share the resulting open-access evidence-based design resources that are available to all care providers and designers and identify opportunities for their application.
