SBArchitects’ desired outcome of dementia design is the provision and maintenance of the quality of life for the individual person with dementia.
To a person with dementia the built environment can be a confusing and hazardous place. Good design can provide an environment that is comfortable, safe, familiar, simulating and easy to move around for a person with dementia as well as providing safe, functional and unobtrusive work spaces and facilities for staff and carers.
Palliative care is care provided for a person with an active, progressive, advanced disease, who has little or no prospect of cure, and for whom the primary treatment goal is quality of life.
SBArchitects approach to palliative care design is to provide an environment where the person feels at home and can be supported by family in a sensative caring environment.
