This seminar explores how to design dementia-enabling clinical settings. It will provide an overview of the design principles that help to mitigate the cognitive and functional deficits experienced by many people with dementia. Two examples - from community aged care and hospital settings - are presented by the clinicians involved in their design and implementation.
