Gilling Dod Architects are proud to be involved at "Doing Dementia Design Conference 2017" taking place at Liverpool John Moores University on 14-15 September 2017
On Day 1 at Noon, Jo Kember (Director, Gilling Dod Architects) will be speaking in the "Developing Dementia-Aware Design Professionals" workshop. This will be a panel discussion, chaired by Ian Wroot (past-President, Liverpool Architectural Society) alongside Robert MacDonald (Reader in Architecture, Liverpool JMU) and Mary O'Malley (Researcher, University of Northampton).
The discussion will explore possible Dementia Curricular and Educational Projects and how the subject of "Design for Dementia" can be incorporated in educational programmes for architects, planners, engineers and other professionals. Looking at Dementia-Awareness training, qualification and continuing development needs to include study of the problems and solutions.
