Homes for people with dementia and sight loss: A guide to designing and providing safe and accessible environments

This document from RNIB Cymru provides important guidance in the design of any care facility for those with dementia and sight loss.

It is the first formal guidance linking dementia with sight loss and the implications these conditions can have in the design and management of caring places.

As people age, it is important that they can maintain independence enabling them to retain their dignity and independence in carrying out everyday activities.

This guide presents ageing with independence as a key theme and by linking both the issues in design of new accommodation with the use and management of the accommodation, it ensures that the facilities and accommodation are both effective and efficiently provided.
