    Hello,

    I would like to ask your experiences in any modifications you might done to the house where a person with dementia live in.

    Is there any changes required for bathrooms, kitchen, stairs, or any other rooms or design details.

    your reply is highly appreciated.

    Dementia has different needs depending on if it is combined with other physical symptoms or not. Dementia with mobility means not putting the bleach near the mouthwash (like I did recently, lucky she couldn't open the screw cap). As the condition usually comes with age then bathrooms may need modifying but then they may with age anyway. Dementia with limited mobility or declining mobility is a different issue.

    Thanks Kevinl,
    That is helpful, but I am wondering; if anyone needs to change the colours of house because the patient might get agitated because of colours, or locked doors.
    what about the safety choices in kitchen, stove, microwaves...etc?
