Good practice in the design of homes and living spaces for people with dementia and sight loss

These good practice housing design guidelines are based on findings from a study which assessed the research evidence around what works well for visually impaired people and those with dementia.

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.

The research findings were published as:
