Learn helpful tips, room by room, on how to modify your home to make it safe and friendly for those living with dementia, from the Brightfocus Foundation.

As a caregiver for someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s, you know the challenges well.  One such challenge may be adapting your living space to better accommodate your loved one’s changing needs. This month we thought we would look around the house, room by room, and see how it can be modified to make it more dementia friendly. When your home incorporates the elements of dementia friendly design, your loved one’s risk of falling is reduced, his memory is aided, and he has more freedom to use his own abilities. A good design helps your loved one thrive.
