Environment assessment tool

The Dementia Services Development Centre (DSDC) at Stirling University is encouraging care providers to make use of its Environment for Ageing and Dementia Design Assessment Tool (EADDAT) by inviting them to self-certify free of charge during July.  The DSDC said self-certification would reassure people with dementia using providers’ services that their needs were being actively supported.  If the environment meets one of two levels, organisations can complete a checklist and request self-certification.  More information at www.dementia.stir.ac.uk.
