Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The number of individuals living with dementia is rapidly increasing. Individuals with dementia often have difficulty interacting with the environment, thus affecting their quality of life. This research analyzed the most recent research evidence to determine environmental factors that impact quality of life among individuals with dementia. OTs may use this research to further their own practice or to take on a consultative role in designing or modifying facilities.
