Designing Outdoor spaces for people with Dementia :

Jason Burton: Dementia 360 (30 minutes) 

Cost : $75pp 

Research has long shown us the cognitive, physical and emotional benefits of regular time spent outside connecting with nature. However research also shows that if you are living with dementia your opportunity to access the outdoors can be severely restricted. Exploring accessible design, meaningful engagement and the latest evidence on outdoor access enhancement for people living with dementia this practical session will equip you to maximise opportunities for enhancing wellbeing through designing for accessibility to garden spaces and bringing nature inside through smart design.
