Launch of "Good Practice in the Design of Homes and Living Spaces for People with Dementia and Sight Loss"

New guidelines launched today (11 June) by the sight loss charity, Thomas Pocklington Trust and the University of Stirling, reveal how clever design of living spaces can improve the lives of people who are living with two common conditions - dementia and sight loss.  

The evidence-based guidelines help make homes more accessible for people with both conditions and were developed after researchers gathered the views and experiences of people living with dementia and sight loss, their families and carers and a wide range of professionals.
