Everyday Sounds of Dementia

Our aim

The project ‘Everyday Sounds of Dementia’ aims to research the potential of sound and soundscapes in design of technology and services for people living with dementia. In this process, new knowledge will be generated concerning: how to involve people living with dementia and their carers in design research; suitable design propositions for people with dementia and the potential impact of the design results in the care context considering the different stakeholders; and how ambient sounds can contribute to the wellbeing of people living with dementia.
