They’ve been collected from this website for ready reference. Too many good publications are soon forgotten after their launch.

Dementia Friendly Home Design – this one from Centre for Excellence in Universal Design in Ireland – very well researched.
Dementia friendly hospitals from a universal design approach – another from Centre for Excellence in Universal Design in Ireland.
Age and Dementia Streetscapes Toolkit – based on participatory action research.
On being outdoors: How people with dementia experience and deal with vulnerabilities – a participatory research method using ‘go-along-walking’.
