DAI is delighted to announce and congratulate one of our strategic partners, Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) on winning the European Healthcare Design (EHD) 2021 Award for Outstanding Contribution to Global Knowledge, for the World Alzheimer Report 2020, ‘Design, dignity, dementia: Dementia-related design and the built environment‘.
Each year, the European Healthcare Design (EHD) Awards aim to recognise and celebrate outstanding excellence in the realm of healthcare design in Europe and around the world across nine different categories. The competition is part of the European Healthcare Design Congress, an annual event organized by Salus Global Knowledge Exchange.
Although registrations are not yet open, we are delighted that the lead authors Professor Richard Fleming, Kirsty Bennett and John Zeisel, along with the Acting CEO of ADI Chris Lynch will be presenting at the July Webinar next month to share more about this report, and how we can work together to create the much needed change needed to make our communities inclusive and accessible.
In response to the report, the lead co-authors have created a manifesto, with ADI, that calls on all of those involved in the support and care of people living with dementia to commit to an inclusive approach to dementia related design, at home, in residential care and in the community.
