Evaluating daylight at home with older people living with dementia: a pilot study

We share the following invitation from Jane Waterhouse, from the University of Auckland;

Are you an older person and living with dementia in the community? Or are you caring for someone who is?

We would like to invite older people living with dementia and their support person to take part in a research study about their housing and daylight!
• We are interested in your views of what is a good daylighting for your daily lives to help inform how dementia-friendly housing should be designed.
• We are also interested in exploring what ways of studying daylight in your homes that works for you to learn about how older people living with dementia can be
involved in this type of study.

Our current ideas include having conversations, using pictures, and measuring of thedaylight environment. Did we get it right?

If you have questions or are interested, you can contact Jane:
call 021 0878 4670 or email

This research is carried out by the University of Auckland with funding from the Building Research Association of New Zealand. Approved by the University of Auckland Human
Participants Ethics Committee on 20/11/2023 for three years. Reference Number UAHPEC26793.
