Iridis: homeowner version 2

Version 2 of the homeowner Iridis app is now available to download from Google Play and Apple App stores, bringing you expert guidance on demenita design at the touch of a button. 

Iridis is a cutting-edge app created to promote a better quality of life for people with demenita. It is based on the DSDC's research-based Dementia Design Audit Tool, which provides expert guidance on dementia design. Through digitialising the Dementia Design Audit Tool, it means expert guidance is now available at the touch of a button. Research as proven that good design enables people with dementia, and age-related impairments, to enjoy a greater quality of life and remain independent for longer. 

Thank you to everyone who trialled the original Iridis app; your feedback has allowed us to create a new version of the free homeowner app. Version 2 of the homeowner app is more user friendly, includes more photographic examples and also corrects some technical issues. 

I have yet to download Iridis

If you have yet to download Iridis, simply search for 'Iridis' in the Google Play or Apple App store and download onto your device. The only version available to download is now the updated version of the Iridis app. 

How do I upgrade to verison 2?

If you downloaded the original version of Iridis, you will need to update your app and reset your password. App stores will have already prompted an update as they would for other app updates. If you have not already updated the app, you will need to do this before you are able to reset your password to activate version 2. 

My version of the app won't function

Version 1 of the app will no longer function now version 2 has been released. To access Iridis, please update the app and reset your password.
