The room outside is the long-awaited book from Annie Pollock who with Colm Cunningham advocates strongly for well-designed gardens and outdoor spaces with ease of access to enhance the lives of older people and people with dementia.

Drawing on the latest research and best practice from across the world, The room outside: Designing outdoor living for older people and people with dementia is easy to read, informative and full of beautiful photos making it the perfect resource for those seeking to build, design or manage better outdoor spaces, as well as for those wanting to access or advocate for them.

The book shows that despite the indisputable health and care benefits, too often access to gardens and outside is not readily available and then sets about to show in a practical way how to change or improve this situation.

Sections on garden design, site planning, plant selection, and maintenance alongside the latest dementia design principles throughout, The room outside is an essential resource for residential care and hospital settings, as well as at home and the community.

Older people need about twice as much light as younger people to accomplish everyday tasks comfortably and the need is even greater for people with dementia.

Light and lighting that promotes health and independence doesn’t just happen. It needs to be designed, with awareness of the specific needs of older people and people with dementia. With many nations experiencing rapidly ageing populations and nearly 50 million people globally living with dementia, improving lighting design and access to natural light is a simple way to make a world of difference to their quality of life. 

Enlighten: Lighting for older people and people with dementia provides general insights for a broad readership, recommendations for care professionals and detailed technical information for engineers, architects and designers responsible for new buildings, refurbishments and alterations.

Enlighten explains how much light is enough, why access to natural light benefits health and how contrast, colour and reflection can hinder or support us in making sense of our world.

The three authors have decades of experience across lighting engineering, building design and dementia care, ensuring that Enlighten is a go-to resource for creating dementia-inclusive environments that improve quality of life and increase independence.
