This book aims to help designers understand how to design for advanced dementia by using a Compassionate Design approach. The book provides examples of design solutions that have been designed for people living with dementia using the three key themes of Compassionate Design: Personalised, Sensory and Connecting. Using this approach, the book shows designers how they can begin to design a better world in which individuals living with severe cognitive impairment feel valued, retain their dignity and can experience loving connections with others.
