I saw this on the BBC and thought you should see it:

Dementia and how to change your house to make life easier - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-49184915

Had to smile !

My first thought ?

How much ?

Eat / heat / roof ... around 4 milion of us can just about balance all 3.

Still , good ideas for those who can afford it ... and have their own homes.

( In theory , I cannot change a lightbulb to a lower wattage or hang a picture without my landlord's permisssion ! )

They forgot suitable music.
Bright yellow edging to all stairs.
Don't put new costly taps just put red/blue sleeve or cloth over them.
Have big pictures on doors of all rooms to show what they are,
(So in later stages they don't pee in the lounge !)
