A light breakfast with David McNair

Starts: 8th November, 2017

Duration: Ongoing

Location: Various

Why is it important to consider lighting when working in the area of ageing and dementia in design?

At present there is no cure for dementia but we can help a person living with dementia to be independent for as long as possible by putting into practice good design strategies.

Getting lighting right as part of environmental solutions can contribute to a reduced number and severity of falls,a reduction in challenging behaviour, improved sleep and better health, reduced stress and greater staff satisfaction.

And most importantly improved quality of life for the person living with dementia.
