Dementia-Friendly Housing Charter (Housing LIN / Housing and Care 21 / Alzheimer’s Society)

Summary

Research indicates that 85% of people wish to stay at home as long as possible after a dementia diagnosis. Currently a third of people would not know where to find information on making their homes more dementia-friendly.

The Dementia-Friendly Housing Charter, co-produced by Alzheimer’s Society’s Dementia Friendly Communities programme in partnership with Housing & Care 21, has been designed to help housing professionals support people living with dementia to remain living in their homes. It also aims to provide a template to promote consistently good practice across regions.
