Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0987189220, Paperback)

In many facilities for people with dementia, there is often little or no access to the outdoors and to fresh air. Research shows that there are considerable benefits that come from spending time outdoors and having a good view out from a building. So, why is it that people living with dementia, often have poor access to outside spaces and the benefits that come from being outside? 'Designing Outdoor Spaces for People with Dementia' is a book that discusses how to effectively use outside spaces for people with dementia. The book is not an academic guide to research but a book for people in practice. It is filled with case studies of real examples from all over the world. The book is edited by internationally respected Mary Marshall and Annie Pollock. Featuring authors from Japan, USA, Australia and Norway as well as the UK, the book provides a review of evidence based research supporting the importance of access to outdoor spaces; understanding how to use outdoor spaces appropriately and case studies from around the world describing how to develop and utilise well designed spaces for people with dementia. The book is written for people who own and commission buildings for people with dementia, Architects and Landscape Architects, Managers of facilities for people with dementia, Medical, nursing and care staff as well as professions allied to medicine such as occupational therapists and physiotherapists and relatives of people with dementia and people living with dementia
