Design School

Dementia Services Development Services

Lesley McIntyre attended a two day learning programme entitled 'Design School' at the DSDC which brought together care home managers and maintenance staff, architects, interior designers and researchers.

During the course there was an informative talk about various aspects of design, light, landscape, active workshop sessions and a tour of examples of hospital rooms and bedrooms.

The participants also carried out an activity using DSDC’s 'Dementia Design Audit Tool' workbook which was in this instance based on a bedroom. It covered all physical attributes of the room under the following headings:

General
