Under double ageing (ageing of the population and buildings simultaneously), people with dementia (PwD) face more challenges in their daily lives. PwD gradually experiences sensory challenges that affect how they see, hear, and feel, causing social disconnection or even danger in various circumstances. How might we create a dementia-friendly neighbourhood in the long term?
In this season’s symposium, we are excited to welcome experts from diverse fields. They will share their remarkable journeys and engage in a discussion exploring innovative spatial design ideas for facilitating smart urban living for PwD in Hong Kong.
