A guided walkthrough: care environments

This guide aims to help care and support staff consider the care home from the perspective of the resident. People living with dementia are unique and need different things from the people and spaces around them. Sometimes, in order to better understand behaviour(s), it can help to look at these spaces from a different viewpoint. No matter how long you have worked in the care setting, your experience of, and relationship to, the environment as a place of work, will be very different from that of a person with dementia who lives there.
