Season 1, Episode 7 - How to support autonomy for people living with dementia.
Today I’m talking with Jiajing Li. Jiajing is an Architecture Ph.D candidate in Tsinghua University in China. Currently studying as a visiting scholar in Texas A&M University, her research interests include how physical environments support the autonomy of people with dementia in residential care facilities. She has conducted surveys in over 50 Chinese care facilities, as well as more than 20 facilities in Japan, Germany and the U.S.
Learn how the built environment plays an important role in supporting autonomy for people living with dementia, and what architects and designers can do to create environments that enable people to thrive.
