If you care for someone with Alzheimer’s or have a relative in assisted living who is suffering from this disease, we recommend this thorough and thoughtful list of Design Tips from from Archievis Senior Living Associates. These tips and design suggestions can help to make the environment safer for the elderly, particularly for those with the disease, and also can be used to improve living conditions for at-home care.
If you are looking for additional resources for someone with Alzheimer’s, also consider the Alzheimer’s and Dementia Caregiver Center, the Geriatric Mental Health Foundation, and the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s. All of these sites include excellent resources and planning ideas for helping to create a safer environment at assisted living centers and at home.
