New app to help improve environments for people with dementia

Working in collaboration with construction experts Space Group, the design team at Dementia Services Development Centre is creating the first app of its kind in the world to digitally assess how suitable a residence, care facility or other environment is for older people and those living with dementia.

The dementia database, called IRIDIS, will make a simple assessment of a person’s home and recommend changes that can be made to the building.

The app will be available to download tomorrow, Thursday 21 September, on International Alzheimer’s Day.
