The City of Moonee Valley in Victoria commissioned AJA Architects to devise a resource to guide councils and local authorities designers to create more age and dementia friendly communities. The toolkit is the result of much community consultation with local communities.
The Age n Dem Toolkit has been developed to “provide practical guidance for the design of inclusive, accessible streetscapes for all. Based on the best available local and international evidence, it identifies elements that support inclusive built environment outcomes for older people generally as well as for people living with dementia.”
Guy Luscombe made a presentation at the 2016 Australian Universal Design Conference about the toolkit while it was being developed.
