In response to the number of residents at Louis Brier Home living with dementia, this project seeks to implement environmental modifications to support resident orientation (specifically related to the hallways and door frames). Based on the data analysis from the observations and focus groups, recommendations will be made for modest physical environmental modifications to promote residents’ quality of life. The partner organization will not only increase quality of care for their residents, but also promote environmental designs other older long term care facilities can implement while awaiting building upgrades.
