Conference: adaptation of the environment and environmental design-DCM
Currently the importance of analysing, understanding and intervening in the psychosocial context of people with dementia is recognised in improving their emotional wellbeing. Based on a person-centred care model, Kitwood and his research team, the Bradford Dementia Group, created an instrument based on observation, called "Dementia Care Mapping" (DCM). The environment of the person with dementia also has an important place. In order to adapt the environment and environmental design for people with dementia, this tool has been created, called the DCM-ENV.
