Introducing Dementia Choices, an innovative product review and sponsorship program, led by a team of internationally recognised dementia design

Dementia Choices aims to recognise and accredit well-designed products that make the aspects of everyday life more comfortable for people living with dementia.

Products are reviewed and accredited based on key dementia design principles, including the impact the product has on air quality and the acoustic environment. 

Accredited products will feature a Dementia Choices logo, which is a symbol of the manufacturer’s commitment to improving quality of life for people living with dementia. 

A Dementia Choices logo can be applied to a wide range of building products, components and furnishings that are commonly used in environments where people living with dementia spend most of their time. Examples of these include door sets and hardware, flooring and carpets, bathroom fittings, seating, soft furnishings, light fittings and more.

The steps involved in a Dementia Choices Review are as follows:

  1. Provide general information about the product.
  2. The product will then be reviewed by an expert Dementia Centre consultant using the Dementia Choices rating tool. This can be completed onsite or remotely, depending on the nature of the product.
  3. A peer reviewed report will then be issued, outlining the review findings and may highlight areas that need improvement.
  4. A receipt of the Dementia Choices sponsorship will be provided for products that meet the standard. This receipt is valid for 3 years. A Dementia Choices Review can be undertaken based on:
