What is the goal of the 2020 World Alzheimer
The World Alzheimer Report 2020 will focus on dementia related design and the built environment, looking at progress to date, best practice and innovation across multiple environments including in home/domestic settings, day and residential care, hospitals and public buildings and spaces.
The report will provide a global perspective of dementia related design that takes a cross cultural approach, reflects regional and economic differences and low- middle- and highincome countries, and will consider urban versus rural settings. It will highlight the role of innovation, entrepreneurship and the importance of aesthetics.
