The DSDC Virtual Hospital shows how good design can make an acute hospital setting dementia-friendly

It is estimated that around 30% of all hospital patients have dementia. Dementia-friendly design features can help people with dementia to feel more in control and more secure.

The Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at Stirling University has developed an online virtual hospital, funded by Robert Bosch Stiftung, It was launched by Angela Rippon on 5th November 2013 at Design Council CABE. Displaying areas including wards, a hospital entrance and a lift, the virtual hospital shows how good design can help to make an acute hospital setting dementia-friendly.
