Centre for Excellence in Universal Design (CEUD) launch Universal Guidelines for Dementia Friendly Dwellings

It is the authors aim that these guidelines will support the Universal Design Homes for Ireland Guidelines and will inform national policy and be used in practice by all stakeholders including those who commission, design, build, provide and occupy dwellings.

If new dwellings or alterations to existing dwellings are built in line with a Universal Design dementia friendly approach, it will help people to remain living at home and in their community independently and safely for as long as possible.
