http://www.dementia-voice.org.uk/Projects/Projects_GloucesterProject.htm The Gloucester Smart House In partnership with Housing 21 and the Bath Institute of Medical Engineering, Dementia Voice has converted an ordinary 3-bedroom house on a sheltered housing complex into a dementia-friendly environment that demonstrates how new technology can assist people with dementia to remain independent for longer. The Gloucester Smart House, as it is called, was launched on 21st June 2000 and continues to be an inter-active experience for visitors who want to learn more about the role of assistive technology and interior design in the lives of people with dementia. There is a monthly OPEN DAY where visitors are given a guided tour of the house, have the technology fully explained and feedback their comments into the process. The tours are free to people with dementia and their carers and to voluntary sector organisations. To book a tour contact Housing 21 on 01285 659928 or e-mail email@example.com Developments in technology in the Gloucester Smart House The devices found around the Smart House, such as the Locator Box pictured here, continue to be developed and refined in response to the many comments received from visitors during the Open Days. Further information on these features can be found on the BIME website and from the Enable Project page on the Dementia Voice website.
