Mindful Co-design for Dementia toolkit

Output Type:Artefact
Venue:Manchester Metropolitan University

A toolkit for designers, people living with dementia, care partners and other stakeholders to work together to create designs for better living.

Design can empower people living with dementia in everyday social situations.

Results are shown to be better when designs are created together with end-users in a process called co-design. The involvement of people living with dementia and care partners (experts by experience) in the design process is crucial for producing designs that are both relevant and fit for purpose.

This toolkit, which was developed as part of the MinD project, aims to provide practical information on how to co-design as a guide for everyone
involved in the process.
