Season 16: Smart Urban Living with Dementia
Under double ageing (ageing of population and building simultaneously), people with dementia (PwD) faces more challenges in their daily lives. PwD are gradually troubled by the problems of sensory challenge which affect how they see, hear and feel, causing risk of danger in various circumstances.
With the aspiration to shape dementia care culture in the community last season, in this season we will explore to identify pain points and seek potential spatial design solutions to facilitate the smart urban living for PwD in such double ageing vertical city. We hope to break through the challenges and innovate spatial ideas with the concept of design thinking, establishing a dementia-friendly neighbourhood in long term.
Season 15: Shaping Dementia Care Culture
100 people have 100 different lives; 100 dementia patients may also have 100 different symptoms and needs. The discussion on dementia is always monotonous and negative: senile disease, weird temperament and behavior, irreversible disease, and so on. When we zoom into the symptoms of the disease, the abilities and needs of the demented persons gradually disappear from our sight. As the population ages, the number of people with dementia will increase constantly. We need an inclusive community that can respond to the needs of every unique demented persons so that they can age at home.
This season, we try to immerse ourselves into the world of demented persons, understand their needs, and together shape dementia care culture.
