Study Trip
"People with dementia, and others with cognitive impairment,
are constantly unnecessarily disabled by incomprehensible environments. We should do all we can to help them remain independent by giving due thought and attention to them. We do it for people with visual and hearing impairment and for those with mobility problems. It is time we addressed the needs of people with cognitive impairment so they can participate as fully as possible in society." (Marshall, in Burton & Mitchell 2006, p. Foreword)

Honours Research Project Proposal

Dr. Caryl Bosman

Emily Sproule
Thesis Aims & Objectives
"I am undertaking my honours project in the field of dementia-friendly communities, because I believe there is a need for planners to recognise the needs and requirements of these vulnerable citizens in the planning and design of communities and public spaces. By planning for vulnerable citizens, including those suffering both physical and mental (especially dementia) disabilities, a general societal awareness of difference can be advocated that will go some way to achieving more inclusive and equitable planning agendas and urban design outcomes."

Got Ethics?
Causes 'loss of memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical functioning' (Alzheimer's Australia 2013)
Relatively new concept, and even more recent practice, in relation to the communities and outdoor environments (Local Government Association 2012; Mitchell , L. et. al. 2003)
Prior focus on physical and sensory impairments, not cognitive (Blackman, T. et. al. 2003; Burton & Mitchell 2006)
