Guiding Environment

An environment to stimulate and support older adults with early stage dementia in their home environment.

Our aim

In collaboration with Stichting KIEN the project of the Guiding Environment aims to design an environment where older adults with early stage dementia are stimulated and supported to maintain their daily routines and thereby improving their safety and comfort at home. Create an 'emphatic' environment that fully anticipates and adapts to older adults with early stage dementia and thereby enables them to live longer in their own homes.
