Carl Brassey, Director and Project Manager for berwickinteriors.co is celebrating having completed the RIBA approved DSDC Dementia + Design course.
With training held in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, Carl Brassey said, “This course helps to redress the balance between dementia care and dementia design by focussing on the complex combination of the individual, dementia and the built environment. It developed my knowledge of the key principles of ‘dementia friendly’ design which is seen as one of a set of non-pharmacological interventions for people with dementia. Therefore any setting for people living with dementia should be dementia friendly to optimise the treatment outcomes from all interventions.”
Any Care Home Manager looking at simple but effective ways of making their environment more suitable for those with dementia is welcome to call Carl for a quick chat to brainstorm the options and things to consider. 01743 440011. Carl is also available to visit you at your care home by appointment.
