GOOD NEWS: Dementia mentioned as global health priority in G20 summit declaration June29th

Birgit Dietz

Great achievement by Alzheimer’s Disease International and partners!

As you may have seen on the news and in social media, we were very pleased that the G20 singled out dementia as one of its global health priorities in the summit declaration on 29 June! We at ADI have worked so hard for this to happen and it will give us a strong launchpad from which to ask governments to take action to improve the lives of people with dementia and their families.

We also worked with our partners on the larger issue of NCDs and Healthy Ageing and it is wonderful to see these included as well.

The key extract from the declaration reads: “We will promote healthy and active ageing through policy measures to address health promotion, prevention and control of communicable and non-communicable diseases, and through people-centered, multi-sectoral, community-based integrated health and long-term care over the life course in accordance with national context including demographic trends. We will implement comprehensive set of policies to address dementia, including promoting risk reduction and sustainable provision of long-term care as well as inclusive societies aiming to improve quality of lives of people with dementia and caregivers.”

 Congratulations to all people involved and carry on with your engagement!! We will do our best to support and promote our mutual work!

Ganganalyse mit dem Handy by LINDERA

Birgit Dietz

Heute schon liegt meine individuelle Ganganalyse im Postfach - zwei Tage nachdem Diana Heinrichs beim “Silver Living Dinner” am Vorabend der Altenheim EXPO in Berlin per Handyvideo meinen Gang aufgenommen hat. Das ist ja echt super - die Mobilitätsanalyse per App!

Silver Living Dinner - Vorabend Altenheim Expo

Birgit Dietz

Positive Überraschung: Ich habe beim „Silver Living Dinner“ auf Einladung am Vorabend der Altenheim Expo in der Brasserie Colette Tim Raue in Berlin teilgenommen. Das Essen war super lecker! Dass das Colette in die Tertianum Premium Residences, einer gehobenen Seniorenresidenz vis à vis des Berliner KaDeWe’s eingezogen ist, wusste ich nicht. Da gibt es dann keinen „Seniorenteller“ sondern jeden Tag drei Gänge, die man à la Carte auswählen kann - konzipiert und beraten von Tim Raue.

Tolles Erlebnis, danke an die DPF AG, Die Rheingau Founders und CARE Invest!

Heute: Altenheim Expo in Berlin

Birgit Dietz

Tolle Konferenz, sehr gute Gespräche mit ARJO und bereichernde Diskussionsrunden!

See great new book on living with dementia by Agnes Houston!

Birgit Dietz

This book will help a lot of people understand the perspective of a person living with dementia and to gain a sense of the sensory and cognitive changes associated with this condition. Furthermore, it underlines the need for an environment that effectively incorporates this knowledge and these experiences.

As a lecturer I have been trying to introduce a teaching module called “architecture-DOC’s” at the faculty of architecture at the TUMunich - so far without success. Thanks to you Agnes, I will redoublemy efforts to add the module “architecture and design for the elderly and cognitively impaired” to the general curriculum.

Sharing expertise and experience - Impact of architecture and design on well-being

Birgit Dietz

Sharing experiences and spreading the message about how architecture and design can influence people's well-being, health and behaviour.

Had a great meeting with Yvonne Maisch, bsk büro + designhaus München GmbH (office+design Munich GmbH) at the TUM in Munich talking and exchanging visions about creating rooms in which people feel good, safe and well-orientated. Yvonne is an expert in interior design specialising in the social and healthcare sector, which fits perfectly with my specialism as an architect designing spaces for the elderly and cognitively impaired.

We agreed that acoustics, light, colour, form and a sustainable and natural room design have a great impact on well being and therefore, in hospitals, also on healing. She mentioned some of her current projects, including Starnberg Hospital, Charleston Holding GmbH and BioHotel Schlossgut Oberambach.

(mailto: Yvonne.Maisch@bsk.de, www.bsk.de; goto: https://www.bsk.de/startseite/)

The meeting was a result of my engagement as head of conference in Düsseldorf last December. The conference was held by Management Forum Starnberg with a focus on building and running senior residences and care homes. This reaffirmed by belief in the importance of keeping in touch and talking to each other. The result is not just a win for us ourselves, but also for the topic we all share: the conviction that we need to create rooms that serve people’s needs and  have a positive effect on their well being.

Could you tell me where the toilet is?

Birgit Dietz

Signage is a great challenge. Guiding people in a clear and understandable way in places they don’t know is a science in itself.

We would like to regularly share some unique samples of toilet doors from all over the world. Which one is for men and which for women? Do they make any sense to you? We hope they at least make you smile!

If you would like to extend our collection and have a photo of your own, please send it to us. Thanks! BIfadA-Team

Workshop "Colour and light in architecture" at the Bavarian Institute of Architecture in Bamberg

Birgit Dietz

To make an environment as safe and manageable as possible, not just family members but also architects and planners need to learn to see the world through the eyes of the people living there. Anyone can change their perspective. They only need to be willing to use a degree of empathy to see, hear and feel the world as others do. If they can do this successfully, they will be better able to recognize and grasp the demands everyday life can make. That is why the participants of the workshop “colour and light in architecture” held at the Bavarian Institute of Architecture for the elderly and cognitively impaired in Bamberg, have tested a pair of glasses simulating an eye cataract while walking on differently coloured surfaces.
