Northumbria University has implemented a series of interactive dementia designs (Iglobe, Paper Street Map and Interactive Tea ware) within Blaydon Resource Centre which has effectively connected people with dementia to places that are meaningful to them, serving to demonstrate how important a role homes and neighbourhoods play in supporting an older persons biography, identity and sense of self, as well as sustaining meaningful interaction with older people.
