U.P $48.15 Hardcover BN Insofar as design of physical environments for dementia care is concerned, there is no golden rule. Our understanding of dementia as a medical condition is still lacking a definitive authority even though tremendous strides have been made over the past decade. This affects a corresponding provisional practice in design where research and innovation is badly needed. Much of the current best practices involve city-fringed, lowrise and low-density settings. Whereas, in a highrise urban city like Singapore, density is a daily conundrum to overcome and this poses certain challenges to design that are perhaps not adequately discussed. The book hopes to fulfil this urgent need to examine salient issues that designers of dense urban settings face, and through this effort engenders deeper design thinking that collectively enlarge our palette of solutions for dementia. The Sourcebook is a general design reader for caregivers, designers and related service providers. It examines issues on the design of environments for dementia and the elderly in general, and comprises two volumes in one: the Design Guide and the Design Elements. A complementary infographics, the Dementia Design Palette offers a glimpse at how design responses can match disabilities from dementia.
