Menno Place Alzheimer’s Facility

PROBLEM

A dementia patient’s environment can make a critical impact towards general happiness and quality of life, however these solutions can sometimes be expensive. Menno Place, a residential care facility, and the Health Design Lab at Emily Carr University of Art & Design collaborated to study how to provide a healthy, comfortable and positive space for Menno Place’s residents, using low-cost and easily implementable solutions.

OPPORTUNITY

Residential care facilities are striving to make residents with dementia feel more at home. To achieve this, institutions apply person centred care, and create settings specially designed to better support and care for residents.

OUTCOME

With low-cost and easy implementable solutions in mind, Emily Carr, in collaboration with Menno Place designed and proposed 10 short-term and long-term solutions that would provide a more comfortable and inviting space for Menno Place’s residents and staff.
