Improving the experiences of people living with dementia

Date
2017 - 2019

Funded through the Royal Society New Zealand Catalyst Fund this project is a joint initiative between Lab4Living and The Design for Health and Wellbeing (DHW) Lab, NZ.

The aim of the two year project is to:

  • develop design-led solutions to promote well-being of people living with dementia in NZ and UK;
  • help understand the distinct but complementary approaches and methods practiced by the two labs, build capacity, develop and expand the work through sharing best practice;
  • develop a working model for on-going collaboration in tackling key health challenges through innovation in design which can be applied to other research in the area of design for health;
  • engage with students in design and health to continue to build research capacity.
