You may decide to move to a new home or to renovate your existing home. This happens in people’s lives, whether they are involved with someone with dementia or not.
Before you decide on a new house or renovation design, you may like to consider an adaptable housing design. There are guidelines about features that can enhance access, mobility and safety - see Australian Standard: Adaptable Housing (AS 4299-1995). This standard supports caring for someone with later-stage dementia when their mobility deteriorates and they need more personal care.
