Abstract

Re-designing dementia: involving people living with dementia in the design of supported self-management This paper describes the methods and process of designing a supported self-management program in partnership with people living with dementia. The paper charts the development of the intervention from early studies with people with dementia to build understanding of how quality of life can be maintained through to the translation of these into a menu-led intervention, tested and refined by people living with a diagnosis. It shares the factors individuals identified as being important for maintaining wellbeing, particularly in relation to the role of design in enabling community connectedness. The paper highlights the importance of creating a shared visual language and the need to design tools to support communication, aid memory and offer people with dementia ways to put their learning into practice.
