This design guidance is aimed at everyone concerned with the care of people with dementia. It is intended to assist commissioners, providers, operators, managers and staff of care homes as well as NHS facilities. It has also been written to help people with dementia living at home, as well as their carers, relatives and friends. It aims to help architects, interior and product designers design more effectively for people with dementia. In this book we are primarily looking at the practical and aesthetic aspects of interior design, as well as fixtures and fittings. For the purposes of this guide, interior design covers all the features occurring in the internal environment. This includes to an extent architectural building elements such as staircases and window design insofar as they have an impact on the interior of the building.
