Better care homes - Designing for different and changing abilities

This site shows the outputs of a one-year collaboration project between the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design and Bupa to improve the design of care home environments for older people living in care.

The website covers everything from the large-scale site layouts of new homes to the simple details and furnishing of individual rooms. It is built to be accessible and works both as an information source to new designers and as a tool to consolidate wide ranging ideas for experts in the field. It includes a section specific to dementia.
