Psychology grad student explores dementia-friendly urban design

“All of us, but planners in particular, need to understand the disease; we need to plan inclusive and supportive urban spaces to help optimize the quality of life for people living with dementia,” says Przydatek. “Research that engages the community, especially people with dementia, is crucial for developing dementia-friendly urban places.”

 Przydatek is continuing her research and advocacy for those affected by dementia while working with the Alzheimer Society of BC as a research analyst.
